#GetHealthy on Route8


The #GetHealthy on Route8 campaign was born with a view to promote the 8 steps to a Healthier Lifestyle in collaboration with NIC’s broad network of established healthcare providers and partners. The #GetHealthy on Route8 campaign is spearheaded by the NIC health caravan, which is specially conceptualised to support this national cause and follow 8 prime routes to make healthy living more accessible to the Mauritian public across the island.

Launched in 2016, the #GetHealthy on Route8 campaign provides free health tests & screenings, with other healthy related activities, to the Mauritian public.

The first wave had 8 stops across the island, Bagatelle Mall, Riche Terre Mall, Flacq Coeur de Ville, Vieux Moulin Rose-Belle, Mahebourg Waterfront, LOLO Hypermarket, Municipality of Port Louis, and La City Trianon. These 8 campaigns attracted more than 12,000 visitors and nearly 5,300 people were offered free tests and screening, out of which around 40% of them were referred for further tests.

The success and impact of this newly launched innovative health campaign in Mauritius culminated into an award-winning trophy with NIC being recognised as a “Socially Responsible Organisation” in the Africa Leadership Awards.

This year, we have embarked on the second wave of #GetHealthy on Route8. The NIC health caravan will once again follow 8 routes and make 8 stops across the island with the primary goal of making healthy living more accessible to all.
