2011 Annual Health screening In Seven Villages

Thanks to all our donors for making it possible for us to conduct the 2011 health outreach in seven villages this year. We saw 2048 adults, and 43.7% of the people seen have Hypertension and 11.7 % have Diabetes. We also dewormed 603 children during the outreach. As a result of the card system initiated last year, we were able to evaluate the effectiveness of the year round maintenance program, and the result is promising. There were many diabetic patients with lowered A1c and good blood glucose numbers, also large number of hypetensive cases with lowered blood pressure levels. We hope to include the six villages that were left out this year due to funding, in next years outreach. Our goal is to have a resource center for supplies, scheduling of classes to teach these individuals on how to self manage chronic diseases, and form support groups.   The villages covered this year are Avutu, Umungwa, Amakohia, Umugolo, Nkwerre, Ogwa all in Imo state Nigeria, and Aro-Ajatakiri In Abia state.
