Did you know that 12% of deaths in Belize are due to cardiovascular disease? People living with diabetes, stroke and hypertension don't even realize they are silently suffering from these diseases. That's why we are here to help!
Volunteers from abroad have come to San Pedro in order to help educate the public about various health conditions and how to prevent them. These individuals have experience in spreading public health awareness and are available to speak with at any time. They can visit your homes and have a personal talk with you if you would like to know more about a certain disease or if you have a friend/family member whose suffering from it, and would like to understand more about it or would know what to do and how to help them.
They can talk to you at anytime, anywhere or even if you have a small group and would like to organize a meeting, that option is available.
* Cardiovascular disease (Heart attack, stroke, atherosclerosis etc.)
* STDs (including HIV/AIDS)
* Obesity (diet and nutrition)
All information about you is kept private.
If you're interested or would like to know more, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 669-6277
In addition to this, the volunteers can be heard on Reef Radio 92.3 at 2pm for daily talks about health!)
