Accra Brewery Limited (ABL) has held its annual free health screening outreach programme for residents and traders at Agbogbloshie, a surburb of Accra.
The exercise was in commemoration of the World AIDS Day, observed on December 1 each year.
About 500 residents were screened and treated for malaria, HIV, syphilis, and Hepatitis B. ABL Health professionals from the Ridge Hospital and the Hepatitis B Foundation carried out the tests and treatments.
A statement issued by the Human Resource Director of Accra Brewery Limited, Mr. Akature Ania, stressed that “we would help create a cleaner world where natural resources are accessible and safe for all. We focus our efforts on building a growing world in our value chain where everyone has the opportunity to improve their livelihood.”
“We are dedicated to a world where communities will grow healthier because harmful use of alcohol has dropped significantly and measurably. This health screening is part of what we are; a company that treasures its people. We have employees and friends that live and work within this community. This is our give back to them. We are firmly in tune with the saying that health is wealth,” Mr. Ania added.
