Departmental Profile;

Kabale Diocese is made up of several departments including the Health department. This department, like any other diocesan department is governed by the Diocesan Health Board and under the Diocesan health co-ordinator, is responsible for co-ordination of quality heath service delivery in the Diocese. The co-ordination office performs technical activities for health service delivery in the Diocese as well as carrying out day to day operations for the office.


Kabale Diocese owns and runs a total of 26 Healthcare facilities (2 hospitals and 24 lower level health units) as private-not-for-profit institutions. This accounts for 12% of the total health facility inventory in the region and therefore a significant contribution of the Catholic Church to the health service delivery efforts in the region.


These faith-based health facilities provide comprehensive package of services consistent with the Uganda national Minimum Health care package—including preventive, promotive, curative, rehabilitative and to a limited degree palliative care services. The health facilities are key complementary service points to the Government health services.


Similarly the Health Department runs a community based health insurance scheme that aims at increasing access to quality health care for the vulnerable and underserved communities in the region.


A healthy and reconciled life for all individuals, their families and Communities



In faithfulness to the Mission of Christ, we provide Professional and Sustainable Health Services; through partnership to enable the population lives their lives to the full.



  • To coordinate health services in the region in collaboration with all Diocesan health facilities and other stakeholders for efficient and effective service delivery.

  • To consolidate services through strengthening the existing Diocesan health facilities.

  • To enable equitable sustainability where all people in the community have access to quality health care services.

“To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear. It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of Gold and Silver.

If only you could be responsible for your own health and that of your neighbor, I know you will get a better one”.
