The Kristina Health Centre
“Empowering the people of Awake with access to health care”
Kristina Health Centre, Otuke District
The Kristina Clinic was opened in 2012 and treats the local community for illnesses from cold and flu to HIV/Aids, provides free immunizations for children, triage, and an ambulance service to the district.
How the Centre came to be
Julius Achon had a dream to build a Medical Clinic in his village of Awake in honour of his mother Kristina who was shot and killed during the war in 2004. With the closest access to health care being 78kms away, there was a large need within the rural northern Uganda community – and thanks to AUCF and generous donors, the Kristina Health Centre (KHC) began construction in 2011.
The KHC opened in 2012, and with it, communities now have the opportunity to receive care in a clean, safe and qualified environment – something we believe everyone should have access to.
