Community members were taught several subjects ranging from hygiene, family planning, immunization,delivery among others. What was most encouraging is that the sessions  were being conducted by Community Health Workers trained by Millennium and they really conducted it very well and with a lot of depth in knowledge. Sagam Community Hospital was represented with few community health worker and its Executive Officer, Benson Sewe. He also took this opportunity to sensitize the Community about the benefits of  voluntary National Hospital Insurance Fund registration since the cost of health has really risen .
