Corporate Social Responsibility at Uganda Baati through the Chandaria Medical Clinic
Established on 12th June 2016 by the stewardship of the Chandaria Foundation, the CHANDARIA MEDICAL CLINIC located at the Uganda Baati Head Office on Mulwana Road Industrial area, aims to provide and facilitate access to quality health services to staff and the surrounding community, in a caring and competent environment at subsidized costs. The clinic has also extended its services to other impoverished areas of the country through health camps that cater to the medical needs of the people in the specified areas for a certain period.
The Chandaria clinic through its partnership with UPHS/USAID (Uganda private Health sector Program) started ART Clinic which as per now comprises of 223 HIV positive Clients in chronic care.
The clinic started an EID clinic (Exposed Infant Diagnosis – These are children born to HIV positive mothers) offering full package which includes medication, nutrition and growth monitoring, screening & treating opportunistic infections etc. We currently have 10 mother- baby pairs in this clinic.
Operated by Uganda Baati Limited, the Chandaria Clinic is a very good avenue for the company to develop a good relationship with the community in which we operate. This avenue has been utilized to its full potential which has been realized through the positive perception held by the attendees of the medical camps held annually by the clinic. The Clinic has also been accredited to the Ministry of Health and able to provide ARVs to staff and the community that need them. This was through the HIV/AIDS Work place policy and program.
