Anyaa Sowutuom MP organises free health screening for constituents

The Member of Parliament for Anyaa Sowutuom Constituency, Hon. Dr. Adomako Kiss has organized a Free Healthcare screening and Hepatitis B awareness in his constituency aimed at checking their blood pressure, malaria test, blood sugar, medications and individual health statuses.

“I have put in place achievable measures to get most of the people in my constituency to undergo a series of check-ups to know their health status. Anyaa Sowutuom constituency is made up of mainly Traders who depend on this industry for income. They use enough energy on a daily basis due to the tedious nature of their work, so there is a need for them to undergo regular check-up.

If as government, you provide the best school buildings, construct good roads or provide good drinking water while the people are unhealthy to use them, it becomes useless

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, there is the need to tackle other diseases as well least we forget that such diseases are also causing a health hazard to the people

We are not in normal times so we should not take chances but take proper care of our health”

He disclosed that people have been screened at the aforementioned communities respectfully saying eyes related cases, diabetes, High Blood Pressure, malaria, and others were screened with prescriptions given to them

“This exercise is a big relief because many people had not undergone medical check-up to know their state some did not know they have BP or diabetes only to realize after the screening. It has given them the opportunity to take proper care of themselves, they are going to put precaution measures to what they should eat or drink. I have been saying that healthy people make a wealthy nation so while providing development projects, we must also seek their healthcare delivery”
