Alive Medical Services is a community-based clinic located in Namuwongo, Kampala, providing comprehensive services to children, young people, and families living with and affected by HIV. The clinic’s growth from its humble beginnings with six clients a decade ago, to its current work serving over 13,000 clients, is proof that the need for quality HIV care continues in Uganda. Operating 24 hours a day, seven days per week, the clinic stands as a beacon of hope for residents of Namuwongo – and far beyond. Alive Medical Services is deeply rooted in the community and has gained their trust because of the respect and love the staff show to each and every person that comes through the clinic’s doors. The clinic has a wide range of services, including HIV testing and counseling, anti-retroviral therapy, prevention and treatment of opportunistic infections, psychosocial support and counseling, family planning, early infant HIV diagnosis and other lab tests. This is all possible through our dedicated staff, volunteers, and a state of the art facility, which includes an in-house lab and separate youth wing.

This position is part of the Global Health Corps fellowship. Global Health Corps (GHC) is a leadership development organization focused on building the next generation of diverse, disruptive global health leaders. Founded in 2009, we competitively recruit talented professionals (ages 21-30) from a range of sectors and backgrounds and place them in high-impact roles within partner organizations — including Clinton Health Access Initiative, Partners in Health, Planned Parenthood Global, and Government Ministries in Zambia, Rwanda, and Uganda — working on the front lines of health equity in Malawi, Rwanda, Uganda, the US, and Zambia.
