  • OUR MISSION FOR MEDICAL TOURS
    Medical tourism can be broadly defined as provision of cost effective private medical care in collaboration with the tourism industry for patients needing surgical and other forms of specialized treatment. This process is being facilitated by the corporate sector involved in medical care as well as the tourism industry - both private and public.
    Our mission is to transform humanity by empowering doctors and nurses to reach out majority patients and organizing workshops where both urban and rural doctor can meet and interact. We intend to make cheap but profession and helpful package that will be friendly to medical student who need to travel to various places with Uganda.
    It will be made easier for both local and international Medical students, medical lecturers, Samaritans interested in supporting Elderly, poor and orphans. This will help doctors all over the world to reach their full potential through a holistic system of six programs that focus on health care, education
