Over 440 Portmore Residents Screened at #KnowYourNumbers Initiative

KINGSTON, Jamaica. May 31, 2024: Over 440 residents registered for various health screenings at the final stop of the Ministry and Health and Wellness's #KnowYourNumbers health screening programme which was held at Sunshine Outlet Mall, Braeton, Portmore, St. Catherine on Friday, May 31, 2024. Residents received core health services which included screening for body mass index, hypertension, diabetes, vision, cholesterol, and HIV/syphilis. Oral Health Services such as dental checks and denture impressions were also on offer.

 The road tour was meant to spread awareness about your four key health numbers to put you in a position of strength to #Takecontrolofyourhealth. The #Knowyournumbers campaign is very important as it helps us to educate Jamaicans about the importance of regular health screening so you can keep up to date with your health status and make the necessary changes to remain healthy.

The #KnowYourNumbers major events are planned in partnership with community leaders and civic society groups to support screening and targeting the most vulnerable populations in Jamaica. These include people living in remote, difficult, underserved, and unreached areas, to assess and provide management for illness.
