"Survival of Childbearing & Pregnant Women & Their Babies - Uganda"

Results Matter!


98.6% Test Results!

80,000 Villagers Can be Reached Through AIM Programs!


We are proud to announce that with the help of people inside and outside of Johnson & Johnson and the people who developed the CaringCrowd fundraising tool powered by Johnson & Johnson, the training program, "Survival of Pregnant Women & Their Babies & Malnutrition" - produced by the The African Institute for Medical Education (AIM) was a true success - exceeding all expectations. 

Check out the video below and read on.

As some of you may know, Robert Britting’s company, Health Initiatives, focuses on ensuring maximum performance through communications using architectural design and behavioral change with healthcare companies.  Bob, co-founder of AIM, is proud to say this altruistic program has matched the company’s very best work.  Michael Kiyaga, CPA, co-founder, is also proud to see the significant success in his former homeland.

AIM is not a thumb-in-the-dyke program.  That is, AIM focuses on many disease and condition categories.  Every one of the healthcare professionals you see above will see more than 2,000 unduplicated patients.  They have been provided consumer education and reinforcement materials to which they can refer as they diagnose, treat and/or triage to specialists.

This program is just another example of sensational results AIM has achieved in Uganda.

The following data speaks for itself

38 healthcare professionals have taken the rigorous testing at the Mukaywa Medical Center under the guidance of Dr. Bernard Kiwanuka, the Health Minister in Buganda (Uganda).  Successful participants received credits from AIM for their two days of training.

AIM truly appreciates the donations and the moral support.  More importantly, many of the 75,000 people potentially benefitting from the program can live longer and better lives through advanced education.  And, the 38 healthcare professionals who participated in the training may see significantly better mortality and morbidity patient outcomes.

Also, we especially would like to thank Health Minister Dr. Bernard Kiwanuka, Ambassador Perezi Kamunanwire, Pediatrician and Assistant Professor at Drexel University Dr. Elizabeth Thomas and Gynaecologist Dr. Lwanga Humphrey for their help. 


Our next steps include expanding the Pregnant Mothers & Their Babies & Malnutrition program to more healthcare professionals working at five hospitals.  This will significantly add to the estimated 160,000 Ugandans already projected to be reached by the work to date.

For those interested in helping AIM to finance we will be adding programs on other diseases or conditions.  If you would like to know more about - or donate to - The African Institute for Medical Education (AIM), you are encouraged to contact us.

Thank You!
