OUR CURRENT INITIATIVES and PROGRAMS

Azmobiles

The Azmobiles have proved to be much more than a couple of vans transporting our nurses around the island. People stop and ask for help wherever the Azmobiles are parked. Advice is given, spacers are distributed, booklets and leaflets given and appointments are made by the side of the road, at the supermarket and even the gas station!

 

Publish, print and distribute educational booklets, flyers and posters.
