Health and Wellbeing

Good health is one of the most important ingredients for a happy and productive life. And yet, many people do not have access to health care and live in conditions that spread disease.

Robert Alan Silverstein

Health is a critical part of human development. When individuals are healthy, they can perform at their best. The Peter Uba Foundation operates Clinic Centers in the communities we serve. Our Clinics Centers address immediate needs from simple examinations to major patient health needs as well as work with local hospitals to assist our cause to treat patients in need. Our Clinic Centers provide access to a General Practitioner, a Dentist, an OB/GYN, Pharmacist, an Optometrist, Eye examination equipment, and a fully equipped lab. We are currently in discussions and collaborations with several medical professionals and community leaders in other Caribbean cities we serve to open several Clinic Centers.


a) Maternal and Infant Health Programs Maternal and Infant mortality is a global phenomenon that should not exist, yet “each day, approximately 800 women die of preventable causes during childbirth and Pregnancy…3/4 of newborn deaths occur in the first week of life”( MIH, n.d.). The Peter Uba Foundation is addressing this issue with our communities by:   1) Investing in training programs for volunteer Midwives within the local communities.   2) Partnerships with private and public entities that share our goal of improving global maternal and infant health.   3) Develop access to life-saving medical resources for trained midwives to administer to their patients, i.e., medications, vitamins, magnesium sulfate for eclampsia, and non-pneumatic anti-shock garments for hemorrhage.       b) Medical Aid Many rural communities have no functioning healthcare infrastructure. The Peter Uba Foundation will intervene by building PUF Clinic Centers that provide comprehensive services to the vulnerable populations in the communities we serve. These centers will provide services such as:
  • Family Practitioners
  • Dentists
  • OB/GYN or Trained Midwives
  • Optometrists
  • Phlebotomists and lab services
  • Local Ambulance Services
  • Mobile Medical Aid
  • PUF Clinic Centers are available to anyone in the community who needs these services.
      Through our Medical Aid Program we are:       1) Distributing life-saving medicines to communities where transportation is unavailable to reach clinics and hospitals. 2) Training locals on life-saving techniques such as CPR, Seizure Response, Fractures, infections, and disease remedies. 3) Equipping locals with transportation systems where possible to reach a clinic or hospital for life-threatening illnesses.     c) We purchase as well as receive donated medical equipment.     d) We organize the allocation of prescription medicines, vaccines, and over-the-counter medications for our midwives, and volunteer doctors who visit monthly to provide medical services to our communities. Donations are necessary to help us serve our vulnerable populations through this initiative. Our Medical Aid Program will be critical to helping our most vulnerable and homebound populations who are unable to get to our Clinic Centers. We have our mobile-medical staff to them to provide general care for the families, especially for the children.     e) The Foundation is recruiting Medical volunteers on the ground and in the areas we work to help us meet the needs of our vulnerable populations.
