Alive Medical Services (AMS) began in 2007 when one woman, Dr. Pasquine Ogunsanya, asked a simple question: what if we all loved each other?
AMS is a non-profit medical centre that provides free HIV testing, care, treatment, counselling, and support for over 13,000 HIV-positive patients every year. Strategically located in Namuwongo, one of Kampala’s most densely populated and impoverished neighbourhoods, AMS’ doors are always open to those who need us.
In 2007, AMS started with just six clients – but today, AMS has become one of the highest-volume HIV clinics in Uganda. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, doctors, clinicians, and nurses serve patients with love and dignity, operating under the belief that every person deserves to live a quality life.
