Unfortunately, Adara is unable to financially contribute to other organisations as we are fully committed to our existing programmes. While we continue to deepen our impact in Nepal and Uganda, we are not currently looking to expand our service delivery to other locations.

However, we are expanding the reach of our work by continuing to share our knowledge. We hope that these resources will equip you with the knowledge to introduce our learnings into your own work.

The power of knowledge sharing

We have worked alongside our partner, Kiwoko Hospital, since 1998. In 2000, we stood together to open the hospital’s first neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). Today, Kiwoko is recognised as a Centre of Excellence by the Ugandan Ministry of Health.

We are now scaling our programmes to accelerate change across Uganda through AdaraNewborn. AdaraNewborn is an ambitious programme to expand our high impact, evidence-based model of maternal and newborn care to 10 facilities in Uganda over the next decade. It aims to halve newborn deaths and stillbirths in these facilities.

In 2018, we began implementing AdaraNewborn at Nakaseke Hospital by supporting them to develop a special care baby unit (SCBU) and rolling out a staff training programme.

In 2023, we launched AdaraNewborn at our third site, Luwero Hospital. We identified gaps in maternal and newborn care and supported the facility to open an expanded newborn unit which can care for up to 20 babies.
