WHAT WE DO.
First Aid and Ambulance Services: This service is executed using a standby ambulance that operates 24hrs run by a well trained team of Emergency Medical Technicians responding to different incidents and emergencies in which people are either injured or ill. Most notable are the road traffic accidents which are common phenomena in Uganda today.
Public duties: We also offer our services during public gatherings organized by the Government. Many local communities count on St John Ambulance volunteers to take care of any emergency that may occur.
First aid Training: St John Ambulance offers Uganda’s most comprehensive state-of-the-art training programmes for businesses, individuals and communities. We train in various fields including
• First aid to different levels
• Home based care
• Basic and primary health care
• Disaster preparedness and management
Behind this, is an enthusiastic and energetic team of fully trained instructors.
Home Based Care: There is great need for caregivers to offer this service to the needy especially those afflicted by the AIDS pandemic. St John Uganda has trained staff and volunteer members as instructors of home based care who in turn train community members as caregivers to minister these services to the needy of society. We have targeted HIV and AIDS infected people care homes, bedside service providers, hospital nurses, elderly homes, babies’ homes, community care givers and individual members of society.
Disaster Preparedness/Prevention programmes: Since disasters are not predictable and can be so destructive to health, St John Uganda conducts and organizes lectures which involve mock demonstrations on disaster preparedness and prevention so as to reduce the magnitude of occurrence and destruction in case disasters occur.
Basic and primary healthy care: This is done in both rural and urban areas through the support of our volunteer members. This service entails the following programmes; Immunization, Malaria control, HIV and AIDS, Hygiene, Drug abuse, Nutrition, Environmental conservation, Behavioural change campaigns among many others.
Road safety: We sensitize the public on proper road use and above all we conduct training to the road users on road safety tips and first aid on the road in case of accident emergency. We are currently aiming to train all taxi drivers through their governing bodies.
