Lesson Taught
Health lesson 9: Disease Recognition 
Irene went to Nabikenge to teach disease recognition basically to teach about gastrointestinal worms. To teach about the meaning,mode of transmission and symptoms. After a review of the previous lesson Irene asked the members to mention the meaning of intestinal worms. Isabirye said worms are the small living organisms that help in breaking down food in our bodies, Naikoba said worms are tinny things found in the children’s stomachs that they get after eating dirty things. Irene thanked them,for heir active participation and boldness then on addition to what they said ,Irene added that worms are parasites that affect the gastrointestinal tract of the human and other animals and can be anywhere in the body. Mentioning different examples and types of worms, Also talked about how worms can enter our bodies and with this the members gave several example like through walking with bare foot,undercooked meat,from human waste,fingernails and many others. Lastly Irene discussed with the members the general symptoms of gastrointestinal worms and with the different ideas the members learnt that the worms can also lead to anaemia,foul smell breath and gas,distended abdomen and these can be in both adults and children. With all that being discussed the members were asked to look out for the different symptoms and advise the other individuals accordingly.
