This startling fact was the spark that initiated the development of our neonatal health and fellowship programs.
Rose Uganda Fellowship Program was created to give Ugandan youth career skills as a community leader and public health educator using our easy to understand healthcare lessons.
Since we began our program, hundreds of pregnant girls have learned about the importance of neonatal healthcare and nutrition for improved delivery outcomes. New mothers are learning how to feed and care for their infants, which results in happier and healthier families.
Our primary objective is to reduce the staggering number of neonatal deaths so that babies live beyond 28 days of life.
Meet our Fellows and discover why we are so proud of them.
