Rwanda’s First Lady Jeannette Kagame on Sunday joined Rwandans and visitors to Rwanda in the Car free day, a bi-monthly fitness exercise that was used to mark World Aids Day.
During today’s Car Free Day, participants got free medical check-ups aimed at preventing and fighting Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs), which are currently on the rise in Rwanda, mainly due to change of eating habits and lack of exercise, among others.
Today’s Car Free Day was also attended by delegates who ariived in the country to attend the International Conference on Aids and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Africa (ICASA).
At least 10,000 delegates are expected to attend the 20-year-old conference which takes place on the continent every two years and focuses on how Africa handles HIV Aids, Sexually Transmitted Infections and other issues related to HIV Aids.
This is the first time Rwanda hosts the conference.
