St Joseph’s Hospital-Kitgum is a Private Not for Profit hospital, PNFP. According to the financial report for 2009/2010 the major source of income was generated from the donors (48.0%), Government of Uganda PHC funds (34.0%), other income (5.0%) and user fees collection (13.0%). Of the overall operational budget for the hospital, donor funds contributed three quarters of the hospital income to cover both the capital development and recurrent costs while user fees only shy of 13.0% of total budget. The user fees charged to patients has always been low since most of the patients who seek medical service are vulnerable and can’t meet high user fees with the ever increasing costs of running health care delivery.

The average costs of treating a patient at Outpatient department costs 3.00 EUR (4.22 USD), including consultations, tests, and drugs while at inpatients department it cost an average 10.00 EUR (14.07 USD) inclusive of Consultations, testing and intensive care. These are relative prices for individual clients. Major surgery interventions cost 13.00 EUR (18.29 USD).

As the Hospital strives to promote life to the full and to heal, we believe that by you donating a small sum, not only you can make the difference for someone in Kitgum, but you will also contribute to the social and economic development of this region.

Due to the low socio-economic status of the population in this area, the significance of locally generated funds or user fees is likely to remain low for a longer time. External donation is at the moment relevant to fund hospital activities till the economic activities in the region pick up.
