Masaka Diocesan Medical Services

Masaka Diocesan Medical Services evolved from being a simple Health committee under the Social Development department into a Diocesan Health Department. In 2005, UCMB demanded that the department gets a Board independent from one of Caritas MADDO whose resolutions are implemented by the Diocesan Health Coordinator and this was accepted. To kick start the department, UCMB paid the running costs until the department was able to raise its own funds to sustain most of the activities.
The implementation of the Civil Society Fund enabled the Health Office staff to build capacity in Project implementation, making it possible to attract more funding. The major land mark in the history of MDMS was the birth of the Wholesale Pharmacy on 22nd July 2013 in Partnership with JMS. The DREAMS Project supported by CDC through Mildmay Uganda which started in 2016 also enabled MDMS improve its capacity.
