Durban Central’s Health Desk conducted tests for BP, Diabetes and HIV during the Easter Weekend. Over 20 Youth were counselled by Sr Sbongile Nyathikazi and tested for HIV. They requested that such an event be held during their League meeting. Over 60 people were tested for BP and diabetes. Those with very high recordings were referred to their nearest clinics. Some had dangerously high readings. People were also educated on vision and eyecare.
Pamphlets on different health topics such as healthy eating, diabetes, Teenage Pregnancy, Child Care, Hypertension, Children’s rights, Alcohol & substance abuse, Refractive errors, HIV & Positive Living etc, were distributed for further information
