Family Life Education Program (FLEP) improves Family Planning services in Kamuli District


Herbert Kaswa, a Medical Clinical Officer at the Family Life Education Program (FLEP) Busoga Diocese clinic, has been working in the medical field since 2001. When Herbert first started this work, the clinic was not fully functioning. The clinic offered only short&;term methods of family planning, such as birth control pills, due to lack of funding and inadequate training of staff. In addition, the clinic did not have the funds or the resources to be able to provide outreach services to those that lived in remote areas. Therefore, the only way for the district’s citizens to obtain services was to go to the clinic, which many do not have the means of doing.
