Early detection of diabetes and hypertension in El Salvador: after-hours use of a school

Siempre Salud colored logo - cropped 2 2015-08-30For early detection of diabetes and hypertension in the community of El Salvador, we used a school building for early morning testing.  It’s a good example of using community resources and leadership to solve problems. The result is a lower cost of health services. We spend our money on tests, medicines and community health workers rather than on infrastructure.
