Company Description

Maranatha Health is an Australian and Ugandan not-for-profit organisation that is committed to raising health outcomes, empowering the poor and making positive, lasting change in Uganda.

At Maranatha Health we are passionate about making aid genuinely effective, and take a ‘for the people, by the people’ approach. Our aim is to collaborate with local people, empowering them to first imagine and then create the change they want to see in their lives and communities.

Our work is founded on our three Core Pillars:

  • Empowering – Health system strengthening
  • Developing – Community health and development
  • Healing – Healthcare provision


Our focus is on the holistic health and wellbeing of the communities we work with. We yearn to see populations that are enabled, thriving, confident, and resilient. We are very aware of the limitations of direct service provision, both in terms of how wide the impact can be, and how sustainable it is. And we realise that treating the symptoms of ill health cannot create long-term change: it must be paired with preventing people from getting sick in the first place.

Because of this, our work is primarily focused on capacity building: working with other clinics and health service providers in the region to improve their ability to deliver excellent health care (both curative and preventative) to Ugandans.
