The directorate of Obstetrics and Gynaecology is one of the six directorates in Mulago National Referral Hospital. The directorate’s vision is a Centre of Excellence in Reproductive Health Care in Africa. The mission is to provide quality Reproductive Health Care to referred patients and enhance training and research.

This busy directorate offers a wide range of reproductive services; including patient care, training and research. It is divided into five subspecialties/ divisions namely; Maternal fetal medicine, Urogynaecology, Gynaecological oncology, Reproductive medicine and family planning and General Gynaecology. Each of the subspecialty is headed by a specialist and is further divided into units that have In-charges, who are midwives. The directorate also offers private patients services. Admissions for private patients are managed from ward 6D & E which is situated on the sixth (6th) floor of the hospital.

Members of staff from MNRH and from Makerere College of Health Sciences work together to offer these services. The senior house officers and junior house officers work together with the specialists to offer service to the patients. The directorate works with other directorates in consultation with them.
