Mubende District LCV Chairperson Requested Cecot Center to construct a Community Health Center

On 25th April, 2015 Center for Community Transformation  marked the World Malaria Day at Kibyayi Village in Mubende District. The activities to mark the day included community sensitization about the causes of malaria, ways to prevent malaria and the best way to treat malaria. As such community members were tested for malaria and those found to have the disease were given the necessary treatment. In his speech the LCV chairperson asked Cecot Center to establish a Community Health Center to save the community, because once constructed it will not only treat malaria but also a ranges of health services will be provided. He requested Director Center for Community Transformation Mr. Emmanuel  to take the issue very seriously because it would reduce on the influx at the Referral Hospital which is caused by self referrals which people do.

On the same day in partnership with Kasaana child Development Center and Uganda Health Marketing Group HIV/AIDS counseling and Testing and free family Planning services were offere respecively by our partner organizations
