Identify health risks through regular testing
Chronic diseases are not the patent of the elderly. The unhealthy living habits of urbanites, such as unhealthy diet, lack of sleep, prolonged sitting or standing, and lack of exercise, are all important factors that lead to the root cause of the disease. According to the World Health Organization, chronic diseases cause 41 million deaths worldwide each year, equivalent to 71% of global deaths. However, many people fail to realize that their body has sounded the alarm of chronic disease because they have no obvious symptoms.
In order to provide key primary medical services such as health promotion and education, health risk assessment, and chronic disease management, the government has set up district health stations in 18 districts in Hong Kong since 2019. The “Healthy Supreme” health testing station jointly organized by the Central and Western District Health Station, Shangzhi Medical Group and Central Street Market provides free chronic disease screening services for the public.
