In honour of World Health Day 2021, Flying Doctors Healthcare Investment Company collaborated with platform capital to provide free medical tests in Lagos. The location was at Durosimi Etti close, off Ligali Victoria Island.
The medial outreach provided free health checks, including blood pressure readings, blood sugar, COVID-19 rapid tests & BMI checks for residents of the local communities. It also raised awareness about common health challenges and provided information on how to address them.
Over 160 attendees of the medical outreach were tested and directed to specialists for further evaluation based on their results.
