Uganda Muslim Medical Bureau

The Uganda Muslim Medical Bureau (UMMB) is an umbrella body that coordinates the work of affiliated institutions and facilitates collaboration with partner organizations the Uganda Protestant Medical Bureau and the Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau, with which it provides almost half of the country's healthcare services. One emphasis is maternal health; Kibuli Hospital (an UMMB affiliated institution) has lower maternal mortality rates than those at public health facilities, incorporating outreach and community-oriented services with strict hygiene standards, and other network institutions offer incentives to women who seek pre-natal care. UMMB operates under the authority of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council.
