Our client (name withheld due to NDA) implementing an integrated sexual reproductive, maternal, and newborn health (ISRMNH) program in 6 districts in greater Kibaale and Mubende.
Based on their baseline study of 2018 with Uganda Blood Transfusion services, it showed some HC IVs were not offering emergency obstetric care due to a lack of blood transfusion services which resulted in loss of lives.
Sekanyonyi and Mwera HC IVs were prioritized for action. In their response, they procured a refrigerator and freezer for blood and blood products for each facility. At (2) facilities, they proposed to install solar backup to ensure an interrupted cold chain for the blood and blood products.
In light of the above, this NGO engaged us to install solar backup systems in the 2 health facilities to support the cold chain equipment for the blood bank.
