What’s Your Number Event at Pipeline Community Mosque
At IGH we believe in corporate social responsibility that’s why we launched our What's Your Number Campaign. WYN was designed to bring awareness to non-communicable diseases in The Gambia. Diabetes, Hypertension, and High Cholesterol are rampant, and these chronic conditions could be severe when undiscovered or left untreated.
Through this campaign, we offer free blood pressure, blood sugar and, body composition tests to various communities. This removes the typical barriers to access to healthcare like affordability and transportation & encourages individuals to be proactive with their health.
On Friday, April 30th, 2021 the Innovarx Global Team set up at Pipeline Community Mosque to conduct the screenings. Between 1pm - 2pm & 2:30pm - 4pm over 80 individuals learned their numbers.
Additionally, Innovarx Global Health’s newest partner G+ Emergency Response Services was in attendance and offered tours of their state of the art Ambulance; equipped with a ventilator, oxygen tanks, and other life-saving equipment.
The event was met with a lot of enthusiasm following Friday prayers, as well as gratitude from the executive committee of the mosque and all individuals who learned their numbers.
