The beneficiaries

205 persons have enjoyed free dental and medical care at the annual Taiwo Afolabi Free Rural Dental Outreach, held at the popular Molete market in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.

The beneficiaries were majorly traders at the market.

The free medical programme organised by University Of Ibadan Association of Dental Students, is targeted at rural communities in Oyo State, and sponsored by SIFAX Group.

Some of the services the beneficiaries enjoyed include body mass index (BMI) measurement, blood pressure test, random blood glucose measurement, blood pressure measurement, dental clerking examination and referrals, extractions, scaling and polishing.
There was also health talk on the imperative of maintaining good oral health.

Medical personnel deployed for the programme include doctors, medical and dental students from University College Hospital, Ibadan.

Mr. Olumuyiwa Akande, Head, Corporate Communications, SIFAX Group, who represented the company at the event, said the sponsorship of the medical outreach was part of the sustainability initiatives designed by the company to provide succour and support for indigent Nigerians.

He said it was also in line with the company’s belief that a healthy nation translates to a productive nation.

Olalekan Efunkunle, President, University of Ibadan Dental Students Association, said the aim of the outreach was to create an oral health awareness and promote good oral health hygiene in the society.

He noted that SIFAX Group’s support for the outreach in the last five years has helped not only to reach out to many rural persons but also equipped the students with adequate field knowledge needed for them to excel in dentistry.

He enjoined other corporate organisations to emulate the company by partnering with the student body to take rural health mission to more communities
