Ghana Medical Relief a non-profit organisation, made up of medical practitioners and volunteers from the US and Ghana, has embarked on a health outreach exercise in Anomabo in the Central Region.
For four days, the team offered paediatric, urology, general medicare, dental, gynecology and obstetrics services to 3,000 people in Anomabo free of charge.
Dr Samuel Kwapong Owusu, a physician and President of Ghana Medical Relief told journalists the number of fibroid cases and the sizes recorded through the screening of women during the exercise was of great concern.
He urged the community members, especially the women, to endeavour to have regular medical screening in order to ensure early detection of any medication conditions and seek treatment.
Last year, the team was at Asiakwa in the Eastern Region and provided similar services to the indigenes of the area.
At the end of the four-day outreach, the team paid a courtesy call on former President John Kufuor and expressed interest in partnering with the JAK Foundation to improve healthcare of deprived citizens in country.
