On Wednesday, October 21st, community health workers from Sagam travelled to Bar-Kalare for a community outreach event. Around 15 from our hospital travelled to deliver HIV testing, vitamin-A supplements, deworming  medicine, cervical cancer screening, and long-term family planning assistance. The outreach took place at a local school and over 60 individuals from the community came to take advantage of our services. In all, 27 cervical cancer screenings were performed, 59 HIV tests were administered, and 21 contraceptive devices were implanted.

Sagam does outreach two times per month to provide necessary services by going out into the community. One in-reach is also done per month, where community members come in to the hospital to receive essential services.
