Provident Insurance, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital organise breast cancer screening as part of 40th anniversary


Provident Insurance, in partnership with the Breast Cancer Unit at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, on Saturday carried out an education and screening exercise on breast cancer at the hospital.

The screening, which took place at the Surgical Unit Park of the hospital, attracted hundreds of people – both women and men.

Provident Insurance has planned several Corporate Social Responsibility activities to mark its 40th year in business. This breast cancer awareness and screening is the second to be organised by the company this month. In collaboration with the Breast Care International, the company held a similar event for students of the Accra College of Education last two weeks Thursday.

Mr. Michael Justice Ashong, the CEO of Provident Insurance, emphasised on the grounds of the screening that: “Provident cares about our women and girls; that is why we thought it wise as a company to partner with Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital to conduct this screening exercise in order to save lives. We know breast cancer can be deadly but early detection with treatment can help save lives. We believe this screening will be very helpful for the early detection of cases”.

Dr. Josephine Nsaful, Surgical Doctor at the Breast Unit of Korle-Bu, expressed her thanks to Provident Insurance for supporting the cause to fight breast cancer by joining forces with the hospital for this year’s awareness and screening exercise.

Provident Insurance, earlier this month, has made a donation to the Princess Marie Louise Children Hospital; and have also conducted a blood donation drive in conjunction with the National Blood Service Ghana and the National Insurance Commission
