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 onward, some 1500 women and 200 men attended family planning “camps”.
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, women’s health surveys have been taken and have been an important driver of our” decision making”. Also, we have delivered numerous hygiene kits for young women to keep them in school. IHA has led classes on the kits at most schools (see above picture). Please help us to expand this program.
