MoH Held Health Screening Effectiveness (3PK) Programme


 April 20th, 2016  |  05:39 AM  |   3648 views



To help detect non-communicable chronic diseases in its early stages, government officers and staff 40 years old and above were given a health screening at a roadshow organised by the Ministry of Health (MoH).


The initiative called the Health Screening Effectiveness (3PK) Programme - which visits from ministry to ministry - is currently being held in the morning at the Ministry of Education (MoE) from April 18 until May 23.


The programme hopes to screen 60 officers and staff aged 40 years old and above per day for five weeks.


According to Dayang Cathrina binti Haji Mohd Sigie Al-Islam, Nursing Officer at the Pengiran Anak Puteri Hajah Muta-Wakkilah Hayatul Bolkiah Health Centre, Gadong, the programme is currently targeting officers and staff in the Brunei-Muara District only but will be extended to other districts as well. Prior to this, the initiative was first held at the Ministry of Health (MoH), continued its run at the Ministry of Development (MoD) and is currently at the Ministry of Education (MoE). The roadshow is scheduled to continue at the Ministry of Communications (MinComm).


"Only government officers and staff that have a record in the hospital and are not on medication for high-blood pressure, diabetes and any non-communicable chronic diseases will undergo health screening during the roadshow," she said.


In the screening, various health examinations were carried out, amongst them body weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol level and counselling services.


"If the officer or staff is found to show early symptoms of non-communicable chronic health problems, they will be referred to the doctor, or a specialist if necessary," she added.


The initiative also hopes to bring awareness on the importance of regular health screening and that personal health is a shared responsibility. It also provides an opportunity for a health screening, for people to learn their risks of getting non-communicable diseases and to undergo treatment or get early health advice.


Dr. Hajah Mustazah binti Maidin, Educational Psychology Officer at the Ministry of Education in an interview said the roadshow is a commendable initiative.


"As we know, those in the age of 40 years old and above are most susceptible to non-communicable chronic diseases," she said. "With the health examination, Insya Allah, those chronic diseases can be prevented or tackled early in the stage."


She believes the programme should be extended to all citizens and residents who are 40 and above.
