The John Sanie Foundation free medical exercise has ended with over 2,000 people screened for possible health complications in the Mpohor district.
The exercise organized in collaboration with the Mpohor District Health Directorate and the Luak Foundation, a medical NGO, was a success and exemplified how early detection of diseases can contribute to better treatment options.
The exercise covered fourteen towns, comprising Mpohor, Adum Dominase, Adum Banso, Ayiem, Manso, Angu, Botodwina, Mampong, Adansi, Weineso, Edaa, Obrayebona, Saintiaw, among others.
Majority of the people were screened to find out symptoms of Malaria, Hepatitis B, Syphilis, Blood sugar, Blood Pressure, HIV, Abdominal diseases, Thyroid, Prostate, and other health issues related to the Pelvic.
Participants who were diagnosed with various illnesses were subsequently referred to medical specialists in selected health centers to start their treatments.
John Sanie, Chief Executive Officer of The John Sanie Foundation, explained that the exercise represented one of the cardinal support services that the Foundation extended to humanity, especially to those in the rural areas.
He said since it's inception, the Foundation has offered many health support services to several rural communities, and will ensure that the Mpohor District will continue to benefit from such a laudable initiative.
John Sanie expressed gratitude to the Mpohor District Health Directorate for its great support, thus ensuring that many people were screened.
" Let us be health conscious and seek medical attention regularly since healthy people help in any country's development", he told participants after the screening.
Residents in the Mpohor district expressed appreciation for the opportunity to check their health status and appealed for continuous screening to prevent many unexplainable deaths in the Mpohor district.
The next screening program is scheduled for the second quarter of 2020, and we will ensure that this medical routine will become an annual ritual, the Foundation announced.
