Most people cannot afford the money for commercial private ambulance services. They are then transported to a hospital largely without medical care on the platform of a police pick-up.
Kilimanjaro Doctors provides ambulances with rescue equipment at German level and emergency medical trained personnel, mostly even with a doctor on board, for accidents, emergency transports and acute illnesses. Emergency transport, medical treatment and medication are free of charge for the patient. If they have sufficient funds, they can make a donation.
If the injury pattern or the illness is very complex, our doctors support the treatment in the hospital, they always have a bag with all important medications with them. Kilimanjaro Doctors is the only emergency service in Uganda that drives emergency vehicles to emergencies.
