Carryou partners with the Department of Health in life-saving screening and testing programme

Testing includes, HIV, hypertension, diabetes and pap smears
 Carryou Ministry recently received funding from the Department of Health to embark on a programme of mobile testing and health screening that will help save lives in the Randfontein area.
 "We visit factories and communities where trained team members test for HIV, diabetes and hypertension. In addition, a sister from the clinic does pap smears," says Mzi Tshikitsha, manager of the programme.
 "Last month 1 170 people were tested and referred for further where necessary. The initiative has been immensely successful and well-supported. Bringing services right to the people make it much more convenient and quicker than having to go to a clinic."
 The current programme is scheduled to run until the end of March 2015.
