The maternity ward, Kabuyanda.

Ruhiira has six health facilities, all of which have received significant upgrades and new additions by the MVP. The MVP has also completed the largest health facility at Kabuyanda with an operating theater where cesarean sections can be performed. Health facilities in Ruhiira are staffed with more than 50 trained health staff. In an effort to improve maternal and child health, the Ruhiira team introduced a midwife program that increases the number of women delivering under supervised care at the clinics as well as increasing the number of women delivering under midwife care at home.
