Lesson Taught
Health lesson 9: Disease Recognition 
Ida and Irene went to Nabikenge to continue with disease recognition and Irene continued with the prevention and treatment of intestinal worms. Irene started with a review of the previous lesson and then asked the members how they can prevent the intestinal worms. The members mentioned several ways which included walking barefoot,avoiding open deification,avoid eating half cooked meat and among others then Irene also encouraged the members to always follow the deworming schedule as per the policy to treat worms. Nabirye asked if eating raw salads exposes one to worms, Irene advised that before eating salads they should be half cooked or put in hot water for some time to kill the bacteria before eating. With several questions Irene informed the members to deworm themselves and all family members and to also inform other members.
