The Junior Chamber International (JCI) Zimbabwe hosted a programme to address and impart knowledge on the importance of good health to young people.

Due to lack of knowledge on important health issues, the JCI Zimbabwe conducted a programme where a panelist discussed emerging health issues affecting attainment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) number 3, which is about good health.

“This function shared knowledge on healthy eating, nutrition and health lifestyles,” a healthcare consultant, Dr Marlon Nyakabau said.

The JCI Zimbabwe National President, Tinashe Rurevo and Harare President, Taurai Choto said they aim at informing the public on adhering to good health habits so that the nation lessens its health budget.

JCI Zimbabwe is a worldwide network of nearly a quarter of a million members.

The organisation encourages young people to become active citizens and to participate in efforts towards social and economic development, and international co-operation, good-will and understanding.
