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!IMG_2937As 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!
