Another Wednesday means there was another robust outreach from SCH’s team. This time, SCH drove 2 hours to reach Mumias (almost reaching Kakamega!) in order to ensure this important outreach was carried out.
It was sad that the SCH team ran out of hours in the day as they were unable to see everyone that came to receive medical services. At last count, 152 community members were seen by the team. Out of this 125 received blood pressure screening (as supported by CHAK’s Healthy Hearts Africa Programme), 86 received treatment, 24 received cervical cancer screening using the Mobile ODT device (resulting in 8 referred for further treatment), 14 were immunized, 13 received family planning services in addition to providing M-TIBA registration and sensitization on NHIF insurance.
We are thankful to our partners, CHAK, KMET and Mobile ODT as well as donations of drug supplies that we received from Kenton’s Kisumu and Winam Chemist. In light of the doctor’s strike in Kenya, it is important that we create avenues of providing accessible healthcare for our fellow wanaanchi!
Great work by our team of clinicians, nurses, community health workers, counselors, insurance agents and drivers.
