Health

#DMUlocal is dedicated to improving health and raising awareness in hard-to-reach communities.

With so many people suffering from chronic and even life-threatening illnesses, there is a vital need for more information that helps people manage and prevent disease to be made available.

This is where #DMUlocal comes in.

As a result of #DMUlocal projects, community members have benefited from:

  • Increased awareness about conditions such as diabetes and blood cancer
  • Training to better deal with conditions such as dementia
  • Information on preventative measures that can be used to reduce the risk of developing many illnesses
  • Greater discussion of diseases such as cancer in isolated communities where it has become a taboo subject
  • Schoolchildren learning first aid and what to do in an emergency

These projects have had a transformative effect on everyone involved and have not only raised awareness, but also helped to save lives.
