HELP NOW FOR BETTER HEALTH DURING THIS TIME!

In response to significant interest and requests from women, IHA , in collaboration with Marie Stopes Uganda, is 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”.  Approximately 20% of the women had significant  infections such they were not able to be screened for cervical cancer.  Immediate treatment for the women was provided by IHA.  At the same time, “Deworming” medication is being provided for young children.
