This was followed by a Malaria Health Screening Session. This had the children going through various stages of the screening process. The details of the children were first recorded, this included their names, height and weight. After this, blood samples from the children were taken. This was to determine their malaria status. As a bonus, vitals of the children were taken to ensure they were not only malaria free but healthy as well.

After all the tests being taken the final stage was testing the samples to get results for hepatitis b and malaria.
