With the month of March marking the commemoration for awareness of Multiple Myeloma (cancer of the bone marrow plasma cells, usually White Blood Cells that are very important to the body’ immune defense); MEDILAND HEALTHCARE DISTRIBUTORS jumped at the chance to get involved in making a difference in the community in the fight against cancer.

On the last day of March 2023, Sidilega Private Hospital teamed up with Princess Marina Hospital to bring healthcare to the community by providing Free Spot tests (Including Blood pressure monitoring and Full Blood Count tests) at Game City Mall in Gaborone. MEDILAND HEALTHCARE DISTRIBUTORS provided; free of charge, a Hematology analyser as well as our Biomedical Engineer Mr Karabo Pharatlhatlhe to facilitate the event being a success. Present at this activation was Dr Botsile (Hematologist at Sidilega Private Hospital) as well as Dr Wada and Dr Ngwako from Princess Marina Referral Hospital.

Also present to engage and educate the public on this condition was Infection Prevention and Control Specialist for Sidilega  and Stem Cell Transplant Coordinator Ms Kereng Moloko and Princess Marina Referral Hospital Private Ward Manager Ms Keemenao Mogopodi.
