The Kiboga Hospital is a level four hospital in central Uganda and is a fairly large medical centre, with four main wards; paediatrics, male, female and maternity. The hospital is underequipped and struggles to care for all of the patients that travel to it for treatment. The wards are designed to each cater for 24 people, but due to the volume of patients there are often 30-40 beds in each ward. There is an operating theatre at the hospital, though it is not a sealed room and there is also an outpatient department, a large HIV clinic and a centre for health classes, such as antenatal classes.
Patients travel to the hospital from the surrounding districts as in the Ugandan Health system there are only two levels of hospital above level four and the nearest regional referral site is at Hioma, which is 96kilometres to the north west. The hospital is administered by the Ugandan Ministry of Health.
