Welcome to Support for Integrated Health Care Initiative
Support for Integrated Health Care Initiative (SIHCI) is a Health Development Civil Society Organization established in Uganda since 2004. It was formed by a team of dedicated professionals involved in various health fields in the country with the overall goal “to excel in health development”. Inception of SIHCI resulted from observations made on the inadequate health service delivery that has led to poor health conditions, life styles, contemptible health programming and weak health systems.
Cases in point include; Rapid emergence of vertical programmes in HIV/AIDS care and treatment, Environmental Health, Malaria control, Sexual reproductive health among others seem to side-line health systems and delivery of other health services that equally impact on health outcomes in addition this conflicts with the overall Primary Health Care(PHC) approach for health service provision.
SIHCI targets vulnerable populations and the communities to enable them have access to health services in an integrated and systematic manner with their full participation.
SIHCI therefore seeks to ensure health development through strengthening Uganda’s
health systems especially at the peripheral Health service delivery points by practically supporting and promoting the integration Health promotion and care services to curb ill health conditions affecting poor communities while aligning with the PHC concept of care, WHO standards and within the National Health policy framework.
With the organisation’s innovative approaches, SIHCI supports health care initiatives in the country through both implementation and technical assistance.
At SIHCI we take pride in working with all stakeholders with influence on health development in line with government structures and above all engage fully, the community in promotion of their health.
SIHCI is a non-discriminating organisation, for all, irrespective of religious, ethnic or cultural backgrounds that will promote a comprehensive health package to all.
SIHCI supports both rural and urban communities to improve their living conditions through Health promotion interventions.
