An eventful year comes to an end. A year in which we were able to achieve a great deal. It fills us with gratitude and joy to be able to give the people in Shimba Hills hope and a perspective.
A new campaign starts on January 2. For the first time, the team at the infirmary is carrying out a series screening of women aged 15 to 45. The aim is to detect and prevent gynecological diseases.
Violet Maghanga says: “We have two types of screening here – the use of vinegar and iodine and the PAP smear. The first option is more affordable and easier to use, and this is the one we have chosen.”
The treatment usually has to be carried out in a larger hospital. “If we receive positive or suspicious cases, we refer the patients to the gynecology department.”
Violet Maghanga has already received initial reactions to the planned screening from women who have contacted her about family planning. “They are very happy about it,” says the hospital director.
