Through our continued outreaches at HOME BASED MEDICAL SERVICES-UGANDA it was observed that several individuals in our communities continue to suffer from several chronic illnesses like Hypertension, HIV/AIDS and Diabetes Mellitus which could be detected earlier and managed for good health. It is at this fact that HBMS-Ug came up with a campaign of organizing several one day medical camps targeting 5000 individuals at public places like Markets, churches and mosques targeting especially the needy special groups and management is done except where referral is essential for good health. In this campaign of checkup we intend to involve screening for hypertension and Diabetes Mellitus from  our communities.  In addition to screening for the above condition we intend to treat other common medical illness that clients may present with in the day of screening.
