Free Health Screening in East End TODAY for World Health Day

Cayman is marking World Health Day in a very special way today - by offering FREE health screenings to all.

The theme for World Health Day 2019 is Universal Health Coverage, with a focus on access to Primary Health Care. And on that theme, the Public Health Department will offer free health screenings at the East End United Church Hall, from 10am-2pm today (April 6).

This initiative is part of continued work by the Public Health Department to emphasise the benefits of healthy lifestyles and the importance of early detection in enabling appropriate treatment, preventing complications and ensuring quality of life in diabetes and hypertension patients. 

Universal health coverage enables everyone to access the services that address the most important causes of disease and death, and ensures that the quality of those services is good enough to improve the health of the people who receive them. 

For further information, call the Public Health Department on 244-2632.
