In rural villages of Northern Uganda Children die from simple but curable diseases because of lack of access to essential healthcare services. Many women in rural Africa giving birth at home without train midwives due to fewer and distant healthcare centres. In some villages it can take a day’s journey on a bicycle to access a health centre. I some case patients reach the health centre to find it closed or run out of medicine. A small child can catch a life-threatening disease and not able to access quality essential healthcare services. In addition, without treated mosquito nets children and pregnant mothers could catch malaria and if not treated could die.
