Parliament Health Week closes with a call for regular checks

Earobics at the closure of health week 2018 1263The 2018 Parliament Health Week ended with a call to the public to take utmost care of their health by carrying out regular tests specifically on non-communicable diseases like cancer and diabetes.
While overseeing the closure of the four-day event held at the Parliamentary grounds, the institution’s Senior Medical Officer, Dr. Fred Bawulira called on the public to take advantage of such events to care for their health.
“The nature of work these days makes people redundant and thus the Parliament Health Week has sensitized the public to do a lot of physical exercises and reduce on junk food,” he said.
According to Dr. Bawulira, a total of 25 partners including insurance companies and hospitals conducted health services during the event including dental, HIV and cancer tests, noting that Hepatitis B treatment was the highest on demand.
“We conducted a record number of Hepatitis B screenings and offered treatment at a cost of shs10,000; unlike the standard clinic rate of shs 40,000 or above,” he said.
According to the Assistant Director of Communications at Parliament Helen Kawesa, the Parliament Health Week is in line with Parliament’s strategic plan to give the public easy access to the institution and public services.
“This is an outreach activity where we meet people at their point of need and hear from them on what Parliament should do for them,” said Kawesa.
Notable achievements during the four-day event included among others a successful blood donation drive as well as daily aerobics sessions that aimed at keeping the public fit.
“Uganda Blood Transfusion Services collected over 200 units of blood during this event, and that is 200 lives saved,” said Dr. Bawulira.
The 2018 Parliament Health Week was premised on the 2017 World AIDS Day theme of “My Health, My Right”.
