National Health Students’ Association of Ghana (NAHSAG

The National Health Students’ Association of Ghana (NAHSAG) in partnership with Perinatal Maternal Mortality Aid Ghana (PMMAG) and the West African Centre for Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens (WACCBIP) at the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research on Saturday, 4th November, 2017 embarked on a FREE Medical Screening and Health Education at the forecourt of the Gbese Mantse Palace.

The outreach was part of the social responsibilities of the association, which ensures Ghanaians
in less endowed communities enjoy safe, quality, accessible and free health care.

The outreach focused on screening asymptomatic participants for various conditions like Hepatitis B, Malaria, Blood glucose, Cholesterol, etc. Ultrasound scanning services were rendered to pregnant women. Physiotherapy care, Medical consultation, Chest X ray and
distribution of drugs based on prescription all formed part of the screening.

Over 400 residents of Bukom, Gbese, Jamestown and neighboring communities participated in the exercise.

NAHSAG in a release signed by Richard Osei-Yeboah, the President of the Association, Addai Lydia Acheampomaa, the general secretary and Parry Justice, the Public and Media Relations Officer, are therefore grateful to the Chief and people of Gbese for the opportunity to serve and care for them.

They also showed appreciate to their partners and sponsors (M&G Pharmaceuticals, Pharmanova, National Malaria Control Programme, AMA and Ussher Polyclinic) for their contributions and also investing
in the exercise.

They finally called on individuals and corporate bodies to assist them as they plan to reaching out to more communities across the length and breath of the country.
