Health awareness programmes and screenings are done in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the National Population and Family Development Board (locally known as ‘LPPKN’) to support the holistic well-being of our beneficiaries.
The programme is conducted via health talks and group discussions on pertinent subjects such as the prevention and early detection of diseases, family planning, nutrition and healthy living. Through the programme, participants are also given a basic medical screening to check their blood pressure, body mass index, as well as glucose and cholesterol levels.
The main objective of this programme is to emphasise the importance of staying healthy for a more full and productive life. In simple terms, healthy people are able to work and earn a living.
To-date, more than 80 health screening programmes have been carried out in MyKasih communities.
