Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Artery
Project Artery is a project whose primary focus is to reduce the burden of NCDs by sensitizing the local and national community on some of the NCDs and their effects. NCDs are not only of public health concern but also constitute diseases that greatly affect the people of Malawi. Research has shown that one in three people aged 25 to 64 years old in Malawi will develop hypertension, for example. This project, therefore, aims to fight the disease by primary prevention. We believe that knowledge is the power by which we can win this fight against NCDs. By allowing the youth in our community to be in the know about the risks and methods of prevention of the diseases, we hope to reduce morbidity.
