Dar es Salaam. The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) has offered intensive training to workers of its institutions to equip them with knowledge and skills for implementing wellness programmes.The programme manager of AKDN, Mr Joshua Ongwae, said the network valued the critical role that its employees played, and that is why it viewed their health as a priority.
“If employees are healthy, they become more productive and they offer better services. It is against this background that the AKDN has initiated a wellness programme to address the impact of HIV/Aids and other illnesses,” he said.
He explained that the AKDN’s workplace wellness programme encouraged employees to take steps to prevent the onset or worsening of a health condition, combat unhealthy behaviours and habits as well as promote adoption of healthy lifestyles.
