Health Awareness

 

Health awareness program

Shap Shap runs health days to educate communities on important health topics ranging from non-communicble diseases such as cardiovascular health and Diabetes; HIV, TB and nutrition. These events are held from easily accessible venues such as town halls and community centres. Alongside the educational aspect of these days, our counsellors provide basic health checks. We offer community members blood sugar testing and advice for type 1 and type 2 diabetics, as well as providing each participant with information booklets and free HIV testing and counselling. We also use these health days to educate the community on the benefits of a vegan diet.
