This week, our community outreach team took us to Muhoho, roughly 20 minutes from Sagam Community Hospital (SCH). At this outreach, we were posted in a rural setting outside of a church, where we attended to the local residents.
Thanks to Sagam’s administration teams efforts at mobilization and posting signs for awareness, we had a large turnout this week!
In total, 177 people were seen in six hours. From this total, 112 were screened for high blood pressure and our star clinical officer, Jacqueline Chemem, saw 43 people.In addition, Juliet and Varisty, Sagam’s expert nurses at cervical cancer screening, saw 31 women. We look forward to continue reaching as many people possible during our outreaches, especially in our home county, Siaya. SCH strives to spread the message of how important preventative medicine and screening are! We would like to thank our partners, Jhpiego, CHAK, M-Tiba, and KMET for helping us spread this message!
