Fund Community Health Screening in Madina, Ghana

Project Report | Aug 30, 2023
Looking for Supporters

By Marlene Keller | Deputy Programmes Manager

Aftter successfully conducting free eye screening for women as part of our International Womens Day Conference in March 2023, the team of AFAWI has focused in the last months on establishing new collaborations and partnerships to continiously support this project. Due to a lack of funding, further activities have been paused at the moment, however we are positive about resuming our opperations on this particular project soon.

The Community Health Screening Project holds community health screening days in disadvantaged communities.  During these days, AFAWI in partnership with Ghana Health Services, provides free screening for communicable diseases and counseling and information sessions on health services available to community members, as public health care in Ghana is difficult to access, especially in the rural areas.  

 

The reasons for the difficulties for the community to access health services are:

 

  1. Lack of knowledge of health care programs in the communities,
  2. Lack of basic health care facilities within the communities,
  3. Distance to health care facilities (lack of good roads, electricity, facility building and lack of funding); and
  4. Lack of income to afford basic first aid materials or medicines.

 

It remains both a national and social issue , as in many communities citizens continuously die of minor injuries and illnesses, that could easily be healed with something as simple as basic first aid or medicine from the pharmacy.

 

To conduct further activities, we rely on further funding from our generous donors! Help us to make a change now and enable free health screening for deprived community members in Ghana!
