This week, Sagam Community Hospital (SCH) took their outreach team to Kambare, roughly 40 minutes from Sagam. There was a great turn out where 185 community members sought preventative care. After over 6 hours of seeing patients, our team was ready to head home.
There were 165 blood pressure screens with 47 referrals to SCH, 88 HIV tests, 42 cervical cancer screens with 3 SCH referral, and 15 Vitamin A tablets distributed. This week, we would like to highlight Dr. Mindy Sherman, an Emergency Pediatrics specialist, and Hanna Haiver, a 4th year American medical student for seeing 100 patients during outreach!
One of our newest developments with outreach is providing eyeglasses at a low cost for the community, thanks to Vision 2.5. We are increasing our efforts in helping those with limited or poor eyesight!As always, we would like to thank our partners, KMET, CHAK, Jhpiego, M-Tiba and Visions 2.5 for their efforts in making these outreaches possible. Let’s see if next week we can see over 200 community members on outreach!
