HELP NOW FOR BETTER HEALTH IN THE FUTURE!
In response to significant interest and requests from women, IHA , in collaboration with Marie Stopes Uganda, is now providing family planning and cervical cancer screening services, along with related health formation, to four rural communities. During 2019 and the spring of 2020, some 1500 women and 200 men attended family planning “camps”. Please see the lower right photo.
Approximately 20% of the women had significant infections and were not able to be screened for cervical cancer. Immediate treatment for the women was provided by IHA and “deworming” medication is being provided for young children.
In past years, womens health surveys have been taken that has been an important driver of our programs. Also, we have prepared numerous young womens hygiene kits that keep them in school and learning. IHA has led classes on the kits at most schools, as you see above. Please help us to expand this program.
