PCI’s new project in Namibia: supporting the MoHSS

A Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS) NCD screening event in Namibia showed that the prevalence of hypertension in adults is up to 40% in some areas. This means a resulting high incidence of stroke and heart disease. PCI is pleased to be supporting the MoHSS, through our Letshego funded Healthcare Innovation Programme, to address this enormous need. We will be supporting a training programme to operationalise the soon to be published national NCD clinical guidelines. These guidelines, based on the World Health Organization PEN provide an opportunity for Namibians to receive evidence based holistic NCD care close to home, in the communities where they live.
