Munno Mu Bulwadde Union of Schemes Organisation (MBUSO) was founded in 2006 by 10 community health Financing (CHF) sub-schemes. The scheme was formed to bring together all SHU supported CHF sub-schemes in Luweero, Nakaseke and Nakasongola and develop their capacity for self-sustenence in case SHU phases out. It was registered as a community based organization (CBO) in 2006. All CHI sub-schemes supported by SHU in the three districts subscribe to MBUSO as members.
