ASA Savings organises health screening at Cape Coast


ASA Savings and Loans Limited (Petrol Business Centre at Cape Coast in the Central Region) has organised a health screening exercise for 150 people in the area.

They were screened and tested for Diabetes, Syphilis, HIV, Blood Pressure, Malaria, Typhoid and Gonorrhea among others.

Five health professionals from Anomabo Health Centre joined the exercise.

The most occurring diseases after the exercise were Malaria, Typhoid and Diabetes.

Some were given medications depending on the type of illness.

Christian Kpogli, Nurse Manager at the Anomabo Health Centre, advised the people to keep their environment clean by ensuring regular clean-up exercise to prevent outbreaks of diseases like Typhoid – as well as to sleep in Insecticide Treated Nets.

He said they should exercise regularly, take in a lot of water, and eat a lot of fruit and vegetables that will boost their immune system.

“Eat nutritious meals and get enough rest at all times, so you can be fit to go about your duties effectively,” he said.

Again, he advised them to visit hospital for regular check-ups and not only when they are sick to know their health status.

Mr. Boakye Francis Nkansah, the Branch Manager of ASA Savings and Loans Limited, was happy with the turn-out.

He said the health screening is organised regularly as part of Company Social Responsibility.

“This is done annually for our clients to know their health status,” he added.
