II. Findings 

1. Summary 

The health directorate are happy to support us to provide the screening when we are ready to commence it. We have been told to expect approximately 200 people.


The health directorate can provide the following for free;

  • 100 Malaria test kits
  • 100 HIV test kits
  • 100 Hepatitis B test kits
  • Hepatitis B vaccines
  • Childhood vaccinations
  • 7 health personnel including; 2 for labs, 2 for vaccinations, 2 for counselling and CHO’s.


The kits will be immediately. The Hepatitis B and childhood vaccinations may take longer to obtain. The health directorate have provided contact details for suppliers (namely BlCF and Ediplus) of the above testing kits required as well as; diabetes and blood pressure screening tools. 

We are allowed to bring our own personnel and staff to expand the project as we please. We have begun to reach out to the above providers to write a budget for the screening program.

We have to provide another letter detailing our plans and take it to their office tomorrow. 

2. Conclusion

The Team of AFAWI continues to work on the preparation for the implementation phase of the project and continues to reach out to possible funders. At the moment, the main challenge is to get the neccessary funding for the project.
