May Measurement Month is a global movement aimed at getting individuals to know their blood pressure numbers. The movement is aimed at creating awareness on non-communicable diseases and especially cardiovascular diseases including hypertension and high blood pressure. The activities in this month include blood pressure screening and counselling on blood pressure and its implications on health.
Stowelink is partnering with Kenya cardiac society in a bid to join this global movement and engage in free blood pressure measurement and counseling to residents of Nairobi county specifically within Githurai, Kasarani, Kahawa and Ruiru regions in Nairobi.
The first activity in this line happened in Githurai 44. We visited the AFRICAN INLAND CHURCH AND ST CLEMENT ACK CHURCH where we set our sights at. The day was full of love stories and education.it would happen that we reached to over 200 people on that day and we had a lot to share with them about hypertension. the team that visited braced the hot weather and continued on with the screening without relenting. This was one amazing day and on the very day we saw and felt the impact we had had on the residents of Githurai.
Enjoy the photos even as we learn about and dispel myths surrounding hypertension
