A Brief Introduction to the PAG Health Unit Lira
The PAG Health Unit Lira is situated in Northern Uganda. It is located in Central Division within Lira Municipality in Lira District where it has been operating since February 1994.
Northern Uganda has emerged from one of Africa’s most brutal conflicts. The conflict has caused tremendous setbacks in education, health care, food production, sanitation and infrastructure amongst others. The North is one of the poorest regions in Uganda today, and lags behind on all socio-economic indicators.
Against this backdrop the PAG Health Unit Lira is committed to continue to provide dynamic quality health services especially to the poor and most vulnerable. As a guideline for its health services the Health Unit strives to implement the Government of Uganda’s Minimum Health Care Package amongst other health interventions.
The PAG Health Unit Lira is unique in many ways: It seeks to fulfill its purpose in offering quality health services to all, but with special emphasis on the poor and vulnerable. In all it does, the Health Unit seeks to glorify God.
The Health Unit is a member of UPMB (Uganda Protestant Medical Bureau) and is registered with MOH, Uganda.
