Community members wait to register for the SCH community outreach.

SCH’s most recent outreach hosted by Esibila Primary School was a resounding success. We would like to thank the school administration and students for receiving us and the community for coming out in large numbers.

SCH’s head nursing officer, Elizabeth Ogada, advises a client.

The SCH team was able to provide free services including family planning, blood pressure screening (under the Healthy Hearts Africa project), cervical cancer screening, vaccines and vitamins for children, HIV testing and counseling and clinical review of patients. In addition, we gave a health talk to the senior students covering HIV/AIDS and STIs.

In addition, we were able to provide free drugs to the community as part of a donation provided by Mr. Michael Clark and friends.

We are truly grateful for the continued support from our partners (KMET, CHAK and MEDS) and aforementioned friends as well as the dedicated team of SCH/MGH clinicians, nurses, counselors, administrators and community health workers.
