Cuban Medical Brigade holds free health screening in North Tongu

 Members of the Cuban Medical Brigade in Ghana have provided a free
health screening service to the people of the North Tongu District in the Volta region.

The exercise, which was held within the Mepe community, attracted hundreds of people, who
took the opportunity to seek medical attention for their various health problems.
The initiative was put together through a collaboration between the office of the Member of
Parliament (MP) for the area and the Cuban Embassy as part of efforts to promote the health
and wellbeing of the people.
Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the MP, commended the high attendance and said health was
among top priorities within the developmental needs of a people.
He enumerated various interventions he was championing to promote good health, which
included major facility upgrades at hospitals and health centres across the district, as well as
free healthcare for the aged and the vulnerable.

The MP promised that the collaboration with stakeholders, including the Cuban Embassy and
traditional leaders, would be sustained towards the well-being of all.
Mr Ablakwa, who chairs the Committee of Ghana-Cuban relations in Parliament, said the work
of the medical brigade in the community would strengthen the bonds of bilateral relationships,
noting “it is a very powerful example of the friendship between Ghana and Cuba.”
Annette Chao Garcia, the Cuban Ambassador, said the passionate commitment of the MP had
attracted the attention of her office as well as the support of the medical brigade, adding that
the medical outreach, for them, formed part of activities to mark the anniversary of Cuban
revolutionary leader Che Guevara.
Ghana currently has more than 2,000 Cuban-trained professionals supporting technology,
education and health.
The Ambassador told the Ghana News Agency of efforts between the two countries to
increase the number of professionals.
About 15 members of the Medical Brigade supported the programme, which was highly
patronised by the community members, who benefited from the screening, including Malaria,
consultation, and medication.
