Know Your Numbers

NCDs develop silently and no one knows they have an NCD until complications set in. You need to constantly know your numbers as a lifestyle. This is because we live, move and stay within the risk exposures. Until our government and society as a whole do something about unhealthy diets, tobacco smoke, alcohol and physical inactivity, 6 months is too much for you not to know your vital health status. We encourage everyone to check their Blood Pressure, Blood sugar and Waist Circumference. Visit any CBC Health Services Facility (Mbingo Annex) to know Your Numbers and assure your health
