Save the Mothers is an international organization that equips professionals (from a wide array of disciplines) in developing countries to improve the health of mothers and babies.

Our Master of Public Health Leadership (MPHL) degree program operates in partnership with Uganda Christian University in Mukono, Uganda—about one hour east of Kampala. Students from across East Africa study in modules, with classes held throughout September, October, January, February and April of each year.

Our staff members are delighted to host visitors on campus who wish to observe classes in session. Given appropriate notice (minimum two months), we can help to secure convenient accommodation and any needed local transportation. Guests assume associated expenses. Some meals (local fare at reasonable prices) can be purchased at campus canteens. Community visits (to see our graduates’ work in action) and visits to hospitals participating in our Mother Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative can also be arranged.

To arrange a visit in Uganda, please send an email outlining the details of your request to STM Networking Director, Ms. Teopista Agutu at agutu.topi[at symbol]

Please note that Save the Mothers does not place medical professionals, students or others in “hands on” volunteer or work positions in overseas hospitals. There are several organizations that do welcome health care professionals with ob/gyn, nursing, and midwifery experience. See International Women’s Health Program for more information.

When planning your trip to Uganda, you might like to take in some of the local scenery.
