Act4Africa is a UK charity working in Uganda to reduce poverty through the delivery of health education and gender equality programmes. We work closely with busy general hospitals in Uganda and arrange tailor-made medical elective trips for medical, nursing and midwifery students. Students also have the opportunity for community work at our health and education centre in rural Mayuge, eastern Uganda. We also arrange placements for nurses, midwives and qualified doctors. As Act4Africa is a registered UK charity, students can fundraise to cover the costs of their elective and be assured that any surplus funds will go directly into the communities in which they will be working.
