Prevention is better than cure and regular health checks can help to reduce the risk of getting serious diseases, so everyone knows the importance of undergoing regular health checks. However, for families facing financial difficulties, it is a difficult plan for them to implement.
In order to allow those from the underprivileged families to have their regular health checks, as well as to raise public awareness of health issues, ONE HOPE CHARITY will resume the organising of Health Carnival 2023 on 6 and 7 May (Saturday and Sunday), 8:00am to 2:00pm at the PICCA Convention Centre @ Butterworth Arena. Given that cancer is a very dangerous disease, this year’s blood test will also include a cancer index test.
There are a total of 25 tests and programmes that are open for the public. All checkings are free.
#Prior application is required for the following checkings:
【Blood test (55 items for women/54 items for men), cancer index, liver scan, bone density test – prior application required】
【Vision test and free spectacles – prior application or school’s recommendation is required】
【Heart examination – prior application, medical report or doctor’s recommendation is required】
