This week, outreach took Sagam Community Hospital (SCH) to Asembo Bay, a lovely town right on Lake Victoria. Asembo Bay is known for its delicious and abundant fish.
Because of the fishermen lifestyle, SCH left extra early from Sagam to catch the fishermen and women before their peak hours at work. We set up camp with a view to the lake and provided our usual services including: cervical cancer screening, HIV testing, blood pressure screening, family planning services, M-TIBA and NHIF registrations, consultations, and vitamin supplements to children.
From the services provided we saw 10 patients in cervical cancer screening, 24 people were tested for HIV and 66 people had their blood pressure tested. For the first time, our stellar Clinical Officer, Ann, participated in a community outreach and saw 34 patients in the consultation station. She did a fantastic job and was warmly welcomed by the local residents. We look forward her to taking her more outreaches!
We would like to thank our partners, KMET, CHAK, and M-TIBA for making these weekly community events possible. We will keep you posted for next week’s adventures!
