The programme started with pre-test counseling done by doctors, followed by screening and vaccination. A total of 351 people were screened out of which 301 were vaccinated against Hepatitis B disease. There was also post-test counselling by doctors from the Ghana Health Services.
“This requires well-meaning Ghanaians and institutions to support in creating awareness to control the prevalence of the disease,” she added.
Executive Director of the Okyeame Kwame Foundation, Okyeame Kwame, expressed his gratitude to MTN Ghana Foundation for joining the campaign against Hepatitis B. He called on all Ghanaians and private organizations to emulate the example of MTN Ghana Foundation by supporting the campaign.
Over the years, MTN Ghana Foundation has demonstrated its commitment to the fight against Hepatitis B. Between 2010 to 2014 MTN Foundation supported screening exercises as part of activities to mark World Hepatitis B Day.
