Save Your Liver Foundation offers free medical screening at Dome

Accra, Nov. 16, GNA – Mr Isaac Agyemang, Medical Herbalist in-charge of the Lord Health Care, a herbal clinic, has called on Ghanaians to discard the notion that hepatitis ‘B’ has no cure.

He said hepatitis ‘B’ was curable and that it was necessary for every citizen to go for medical check up and immunisation against the disease. Mr Agyemang made the call when Save Your Liver Foundation, a non-governmental organisation (NGO) in partnership with the clinic offered free medical screening on hepatitis-related diseases for more than 1,000 people at Dome in Accra at the weekend.

They were screened on alcoholic hepatitis, chemical hepatitis and auto immune hepatitis. Mr Agyemang said the aim of the exercise was to create an awareness on the need for Ghanaians to know more about the disease and its dangerous effects.

He said the NGO had so far offered free screening to more than 6,000 people at Dome and Ashiaman, in the Greater Accra Region. Mr Agyemang advised Ghanaians to desist from indiscriminate sex and avoid the sharing of sharp objects, tooth brush, blood transfusion and kissing, which he said were some of the major causes of transmission.
