CLOSE to 40 allied health professionals from the Ministry of Health (MoH) yesterday participated in the Allied Health Association’s (AHA) first treasure hunt.

The event was organised as a way to encourage team-building among participants as well as to support physical activity and a healthy lifestyle.

The four-member team ‘WinWinNoLose’ took home first place after accumulating 75 points.

Present to hand out prizes yesterday was MoH Deputy Permanent Secretary (Professional and Technical) Dr Hjh Rahmah Hj Md Said.

According to an AHA representative, a total of nine four-member teams took part in the event.

For the hunt, teams were given maps to locations for 10 stations, where they had to complete mind or body challenges before carrying out allied health professional related tasks.

Following the tasks, teams received clues to locate hidden tokens which were counted and accumulated as points.

AHA was formally formed on December 31, 2014 with the objective of fostering and encouraging international standards of professional practice and ethics within allied health professionals in Brunei.

Among allied health professions which provide a wide range of services to the public are audiologists, clinical psychologists, health education officers, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, public health officers, radiographers and scientific officers.
