Takelech is 67 and was found to have high blood pressure 7 years ago. At the time she was having palpitations and often felt dizzy. She has always worked at home, cooking and cleaning, but before she was diagnosed she would often have to stop working after fainting or feeling too dizzy to continue. Since coming to the health centre and starting on drug treatment, HCT, she feels much better and her symptoms have resolved, which means she finds it easier to work.
She lives an hour away, on foot from the health centre and says she will continue to come and attend regular appointments and collect her medication.
