Stroke World Health Day

MediRite Pharmacies will be offering free health screenings to people for World Health Day, this is everything you need to know.


149 MediRite pharmacies, which can be found at selected Shoprite and Checkers supermarkets across South Africa, will be offering free wellness screenings on Saturday, 7 April 2018 in support of World Health Day. The check-ups will include blood sugar, cholesterol, blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) tests.

The World Health Organisation’s (WHO) theme for World Health Day 2018 is to advance the health of all people – ensuring that everyone, everywhere can access essential quality health services.

WHO is a specialized agency of the United Nations that is concerned with international public health. It was established on 7 April 1948 headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland.

“Many people take access to basic health screenings for granted. These health screenings provide customers with a basic, yet vital understanding of their general health conditions and play a critical role in identifying health problems at an early stage and bettering the chance for effective treatment. That is why it is important to undergo regular health screenings.” – Andre van Aswegen, General Manager at MediRite

To take advantage of this free service, customers are urged to make an appointment at their local MediRite pharmacy and need to produce their green identity books or smart ID cards when doing so.

Discovery Vitality members earn vitality points when wellness screenings are done through MediRite.

MediRite pharmacies also offer free health screenings to senior citizens aged 60 and older on the first Wednesday of every month.

Will you be taking advantage of this incredible offer?
