St. Johns general hospital provides free medical services
Regardless of the ongoing Doctors' strike, St. John’s General Hospital is providing free medical services to residents of some selected communities in the Greater Accra region.
A medical team carrying the six months long exercise is providing free screening, scanning and consultancy services to beneficiary communities including Amasaman, Taifa, Achimota, West and East Legon.
The team is also providing sexual counseling to the youth who are preparing for marriage.
Speaking to Citi News
, a member of the team, Dr. Nana Ayew said, “It is of interest to know that there is a high prevalence of issues that result in infertility and more worrying is among young people who are yet to marry and these are things they don’t know.”
He implied, “Clearly if somebody doesn’t point it out to the young people preparing for marriage, they will get into it and then find out that they have difficulty with birth, so we think that it is glorifying for our course because we are in the position to tell them early so that they will act on it.”
According to Dr. Ayew, congregants of some selected churches in various parts of Accra have so far benefited from the exercise.
The exercise forms part of a tailored programme targeted at honoring the St. Johns General Hospital social responsibilities.
