Health Day Launch in Benin

We are excited to share about the expansion of the Health Days to other African countries ( 9 planned for 2018), and most recently the inception in Benin!

Benin is one of several new countries recently brought on board to serve more people globally through the Rotary Family Health Days!

We caught up with Olowu Olugbemiga who shared more details as  to their first campaign which JUST occurred on the 12th April 2018:

There were 9 sites spread over about 200 km radius of the country.

All the sites are zonal and community hospitals which are catchment venues for the citizens and referrals points for those tested positive. There were two mobile clinics provided by one of the sponsors. A lot of patients for breast cancer were attended to. Hand washing techniques were taught at all sites.
