Key performance indicators for the last five years

We have made significant improvements in the key performance indicators over the past five years. This change improvement is attributed to the number of interventions that have been supported in the District by both Ministry of Health/GoU and the implementing partners in the District without forgetting the efforts of the CBOs operating in Kasese and specifically offering healthcare services in the District. See below;
