Problem Statement and Development Hypothesis

Uganda's healthcare performance is still ranked as one of the worst in the world by the World Health Organization, with the country being ranked 186th out of 191 nations. The health and life expectancy of Ugandans are among the lowest across the globe. The Ugandan health sector is deeply fragmented, dominated by small and medium-sized mom-and-pop-owned businesses. Many of them are seeking an exit but have no way out, while others have no access to financing and are on the verge of collapse due to a myriad of redundant operations.

* Uganda’s health facilities are classified into seven levels based on the services they provide and the catchment area they are intended to serve. The health facilities are designated as Health Centre level one (HC I) to Health Centre Level four (HC IV); General hospital, Regional Referral hospital and National Referral hospital.

Our goal, as The Burnratty Investment Group, is to roll up various small and mid-sized businesses, particularly general practitioners, who form the largest percentage of the private for-profit small and medium-sized businesses. We aim to build a mega corporation that delivers top-notch quality healthcare and research, with streamlined operational systems geared towards the delivery of swift, quality, and accessible healthcare. This will greatly improve the sector in Uganda, impacting the entire East African, African, and global health sectors.

The project development hypothesis is: If strategic profit-seeking investments are made to strengthen the management and performance of the health system, increase access to a high-quality package of essential health services, and increase the engagement of individuals and communities in the management of their health and health services, then the health status of men, women, children, and other vulnerable populations will improve.
