We started strong in 2020 at the February Supercamp in Budaka District, treating a Bulamu-record 17,206 patients in one week at an average cost of $5.10 per patient. Over 5 days we treated 6% of the entire population of Budaka District. The “True Value Analysis” of the services we provided demonstrates how far every dollar goes at our Supercamps. We were able to provide a “true value” of $29.90 in fair market prices for the $5.10 we spent on each patient. That’s 5.9 times our out-of-pocket costs, and if the same services were provided in the U.S., that might be 100 times greater.
Here’s a snapshot from our 2019 annual report that details the attendance at every one of our Bulamu Supercamps:
