Save for Health Uganda (SHU) is a local non-governmental organization whose mission is to improve the quality of health of Ugandans through self managed Community Health financing (CHF) approaches. SHU has been in existence since 2003, with a mandate to operate national wide programs. SHU is now a national NGO with more focus areas The present programs are implemented in districts of Luwero, Nakaseke, Nakasongola, Bushenyi, Sheema, Masaka, Lwengo and Bukomansibi.
Our approach to CHF SHU promotes health micro-prepayment schemes (HMPS) that are self owned, self financed and self managed by the communities. At the first level, the HMPS are created as individual schemes. At level two, they are networked into a regional union of schemes body that is technically managed and co-funded by schemes and SHU, under the three Membership coverage mechanisms.
