HEPS Uganda


The campaign involved media, high blood pressure screening, body mass index and other risk factors. It also involved local leaders as champions.

It was a one month long campaign. No such campaign has ever been done before in my home town. It targeted women working in the informal sector e.g. Market vendors. They sit for long hours and are often not targeted. Most believe being fat is a sign of success. It also targeted secondary schools in the area so students will grow up knowing how to prevent stroke and will reach out their families with these messages. About 1,000 people benefited directly. 400,000 will benefit indirectly through mass media.
