Terrewode Women's Community Hospital (TWCH) is the first and only a state-of-art, patient-centered super-specialized hospital for the management of OF in Uganda and East Africa with an annual treatment capacity of 400 patients. It is a subsidiary of TERREWODE, the parent entity and it partners with Uganda’s Ministry of Health and other stakeholders addressing OF. TWCH provides holistic, routine and respectful care to women and girls suffering from OF. It operates three theatre days per week and patient screening is conducted from Monday to Friday with two dedicated resident specialist doctors. Women and girls who seek care at TWCH are provided with care takers and all services related to their treatment are free but are paid for by partners. The hospital supports clinical research and capacity building of health workers and communities. >
Before TWCH was birthed into operation, TERREWODE used to collaborate with the Ministry of Health to provide surgical treatment for women and girls with obstetric fistulas in public health facilities. We continue to nurture this warm working relationship with the public health facilities and support treatment of women therein to provide alternative access of quality care to the patients.
