Overview

During our visit to the community head, we had the need analysis carried out by providing questionaire to the populace and we realized they have little access to good medical care. During the execution of the project, over 400 were sensitized on the diseases, they were screened to know their status on Hepatitis B and C, HIV/AIDs, and Malaria, those tested negative were vaccinated courtesy of ADONAI-RAPHA Medical Centre and those tested positive were reffered to the Barau Diko General hospital and Adonai-rapha medical centre. it was confirmed that 85% of the populace are yet to be vaccinated and our interaction also confirmed that they have no knowledge or awareness of Hepatitis. this led us to conclude on the need to educate, screened, and carry out vaccination for those who test negative while those who test positive will be recommended for treatment.
