Bliss GVS Pharma donates medicines to Cape Coast Teaching Hospital


Bliss GVS Pharma Ghana has donated medicine worth over GHC 270,000 to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital and Winneba Trauma Hospital, in the Central region, to commemorate approaching World Malaria Day 2024.

The initiative, which is being for the fourth consecutive year, forms part of the company’s corporate social responsibility and aligns with its efforts towards eradicating malaria from the African continent.

This comes under Bliss GVS Pharma’s campaign, “Act for Africa: A Malaria-Free Continent,” which aims to provide crucial medical support to combat malaria, particularly in vulnerable communities.

The gesture, according to officials of the company, underscores their dedication to ensuring that every individual gets access to high-quality medicines, particularly in regions heavily burdened by malaria.

The donation comprises anti-malarial and other essential medicines like LONART, GSUNATE, Fricks, Gacet and among others.

It was noted that the driving force behind this vision is the Managing Director of Bliss GVS Pharma, Mr. Gagan Sharma. “His unwavering belief in the fundamental right to healthcare motivates the company’s endeavours to make a tangible difference in the fight against malaria,” officials said.

Pharm Rosemary Kyei, who led the donation, underscored the company’s commitment to malaria eradication, noting “it is our social duty to contribute towards ensuring that no one is deprived of essential healthcare, especially in the battle against diseases like malaria.”

“Through our ‘Act for Africa’ campaign, we aim to play our part in making Africa a malaria-free continent,” she added.

The Chief Executive Officer of Cape Coast Teaching Hospital, Dr. Eric Kofi Nyedu, receiving the items, expressed profound gratitude for Bliss GVS Pharma’s benevolent gesture.

He said, “We’re grateful for Bliss GVS Pharma’s generous antimalarial and other essential medicines donation, which strengthens our ability to treat patients, especially during peak malaria season and health outreaches in villages around the Cape Coast enclave.”

“We have identified that Bliss GVS is dedication to improving community health through our partnership and we will always recommend them,” he stated.

The donation of the estimated GHC 276,000 worth of medicine symbolizes Bliss GVS Pharma’s commitment to corporate social responsibility and its belief in the transformative power of collective action.

The partnership with local healthcare institutions is seen to be part of the company’s commitment to strengthen healthcare delivery and improve access to malaria treatments.

In addition, the students of the Cape Coast Nursing and Midwifery College were engaged in a health talk where resource persons equipped them with topics on personal and vaginal hygiene, malaria prevention, and spread.
