Know the Unknown – Long term conditions like hypertension and diabetes can be prevented, managed and in some cases brought into remission if people are able to manage their lifestyle and risk appropriately.

These conditions are the leading causes of preventable sight-loss.

The “Know your numbers campaign” encourages people in the BME community to know key information about their currently health and wellbeing like blood pressure, cholesterol, BMI, and blood sugars.  They can then use this information to adapt their lifestyle or receive treatment to keep these numbers within safe ranges.

ABALON currently runs health and wellbeing information sessions in several London churches and online.  We are currently applying for grant funding to extend this programme during 2021.
