The Ghana Electronic and Musical Instruments Dealers Association (GERMIDA) has organised a free health screening for residents of Accra Zongo Lane in collaboration with the Kolebu Teaching Hospital.
The free health screening was organised to assist them in determining their health status.
It is part of the Association’s 15th-anniversary celebration today, July 26, 2023.
The residents were screened for blood pressure, pulse, weight, BMI, medical history, diabetes, Hepatitis B, eye screening, breast examination, and other factors by a team of doctors and nurses from Kolebu Teaching Hospital.
Mrs. Nana Ama Konadu, Treasurer of the Association, told the media that the goal of the exercise was to help residents understand their health status.
According to her, it is critical for people to check their health status on a regular basis so that they are aware of their medical conditions and can seek treatment as needed.
Vice Chairman of the Association Samuel K Owusu, for his part, stated that the government must address the cedi depreciation because it is affecting their business.
He stated that the government needed to act as soon as possible to salvage the situation because the country’s businesses competed with those in the West African sub-region.
Meanwhile, the Association’s National Chairman, Vincent Osei Dei, has urged the government to reduce import duties at the ports.
He bemoaned how the situation was interfering with their operations.
