RHD study roll out continues, beginning at Nawanyago
It has been an incredibly successful week for ITW. We are, for the first time, extending the ITW ultrasound program to include a study that looks for rheumatic heart disease in pregnant women. Earlier in the week we began the roll-out at Kasambya Health Center III in Mubende and now we have traveled to Nawanyago to do the same. Here are some photos captured during the last couple of days in Nawanyago.
