Ehetuwewa Maha Vidyalaya students, their families and community members at the Health Camp in Anuradhapura


AIA Insurance took their promise of helping people live healthier, longer, better lives to Anuradhapura recently. The world’s second largest life insurer partnered Asiri Surgical Hospital in conducting a Health Camp at the Ehetuwewa Maha Vidyalaya, where approximately 200 school kids, their parents and the community around the school gathered for a day of health checks and advice on health and wellness. Medical testing and physical examinations were carried out, with focus on serum creatinine and urine micro albumin, since kidney-related issues are prevalent in the region. There were quite a few critical medical issues that were identified in both adults and children, and all those affected were advised on the necessary course of medical treatment. Medical professionals also carried out awareness sessions on healthy lifestyles and dietary habits, including advice on exercise and physical activity, practice of good hygiene and tips for planning, enjoying and sticking to a healthy diet.
