Taking a Healthy Interest in You
An agency of the Ministry of Health
ISO 9001:2008 Certified
The aim is to continuously emphasize the importance of personal responsibility for health and our health-screening programme is a critical one in this effort. Health screening makes it possible for common diseases to be detected early, prevented and treated and is important in improving the health of our society.
Community Health Days are conducted at least once per week throughout various communities across the island and the following screening tests offered are:
The agencies contracted to administer these tests are Heart Foundation of Jamaica and Diabetes Association of Jamaica. Reports are required from each agency giving follow –up information for those patients who present with abnormal results.
We participate in other community organized health fairs and facilitate presentations/talks at offices upon request and evaluation.
The NHF stages its own NHF Health Fairs in various parishes, where basic screening tests are provided, health presentations and physical activity games.
