A FAMILY healthy survey was successfully conducted in Isabel Province over the past two weeks.
About 25 nurses working within the health promotion department, the vector borne disease control program (VBDCP), Buala hospital and the surrounding clinics in Isabel, took part in the survey which successfully ended last Friday.
The nurses visited various communities and talked to families about health issues affecting them and how to reduce some of the health problems and diseases, during the 10-day survey.
Programme coordinator of the survey Ambrose Kikolo said the survey was an opportunity for nurses to talk and discuss with families about health issues.
“We discuss with families about living a healthy lifestyle, eating proper diets and also to look at how people maintain hygiene at their homes,” Mr Kikolo said.
He added that during the program, all the nurses collected data from each family they visited.
“All the data collected will show which areas nurses need to improve on in their work at clinics and in communities.”
Mr Kikolo acknowledged members of the villagers visited for their support cooperation with the nurses during the course of that survey.
