We evaluate results of health care of the Czech-Slovak-Ugandan Hospital in Buikwe in Uganda in years 2009–2010. During this period numbers of out-patient examinations, deliveries, major operations and laboratory examinations continually increased. However; the obstetrical care at the Hospital was insufficient, some gynaecologists were absent for long time. Leading physician of Maternity ward was a Ugandan doctor 3 years after graduation without any specialization. Obstetrical care at the Hospital should be provided by an experienced gynaecologist with at least of 10 years of obstetrical practice. Hospital should be managed by an experienced physician in the position of the Medical Director and by another person at the authority of Administrative Director. From the side of the main provider of the Hospital – Archdiocese Charity Prague it would be necessary to renew desolate beds in the Hospital, to complete construction of Paediatric and Adult wards, to accept more professional management and to return to the original project for decrease of maternal and perinatal mortality.

Key words:
Uganda, Czech-Slovak Hospital, health care, maternal and perinatal mortality, Archdiocese Charity Prague.
