The burden of this mosquito-borne disease weighs heavily on communities, affecting both health and economic prosperity.

“We have been making donations, and this year marks our fourth consecutive year of doing so,” he added.

With access to quality antimalarial medications, it is hoped that the Hospital can enhance its capacity to diagnose and treat malaria cases promptly, thereby reducing complications and saving lives.

Moreover, this support is seen to reinforce the Hospital’s role as a frontline institution in the battle against malaria in the Tamale community.

The Head of Pharmacy Department of Tamale West Hospital, Dr. Billah Bagamsah, receiving the items on behalf Hospital expressed gratitude to Bliss GVS Pharma Ghana for the good gesture.

He said, “Malaria is among the top three mortalities in the hospital and this donation will really go a long way to curb and reduce the incidence rate.”

If you check our OPD attendance, currently, as the rain has started, the OPD attendance for malaria is increasing and with these products, it will help the hospital treat this illness.”
