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”.

Family Planning – July 2019

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.

Hygiene Kits enable girls to stay in school – 2018 – Stella Omuse teaching

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.
