Global Impact for Rural Innovation Foundation embarked on a rural outreach/charity visit in partnership with the Boys’ Brigade, Nigeria, Rivers State Council at Obibi Etche, in Etche local government area, Rivers state. The Outreach featured free medical care which
includes medical laboratory investigations and drug administration, Eye checks/free glasses, Dental checkups (scaling and polishing),
HPV tests, STI, etc.
While the outreach catered for the bodily needs by providing clothes and food, the health of the community wasn’t
overlooked as the medical team catered for it.
We had two positive cases, one for HIV and the other for hepatitis B. They both did not have prior knowledge of their status. Counseling
and follow was provided for both persons.
While we go about our activities and business, remember not to relegate your health to the background. Hepatitis B if left untreated will
damage your liver.
KNOW YOUR HIV STATUS SCREEN FOR HEPATITIS B.
