Purpose

To educate, inform and empower the general public on living and maintaining a healthy lifestyle


Overview

JCI Capital’s Health Note project imparted knowledge to a selected population from the Mabelreign community. This community was randomly selected for the Health Note Project. We conduct trainings on wellness issues with experts and specialists in Health related issues to promote and raise awareness on Health and wellness in light of Non Communicable diseases.

Our needs analysis established that, Non Communicable diseases are mainly caused by issues of Diet, lack of Physical fitness, stress, alcohol and drug abuse hence they have been termed lifestyle diseases. Changes in lifestyle, cultural socialisation, technology and lack of knowledge influences the general populace thus people are unaware of preventative measures, unwilling to make lifestyle adjustments and take medication after diagnosis because they feel fine at the moment.
