The CEO of the Nation Builders Corps, Dr Anyars Ibrahim, has organised a free medical screening exercise for more than 5000 people in Tamale, Northern Region.

Dr Anyars, who intends running for the Tamale Central Constituency seat in the 2020 polls, said the screening formed part of the activities to mark the end of the Ramadan fasting period.

The exercise, he noted, is to give the opportunity to the aged and poor to have access to free medical care and treatment.

Dr Anyars said a healthy lifestyle inures to the wellbeing of the family and, therefore, the need to protect people from becoming vulnerable to disease.

He said he would continue to organise the screening for old men and women to ensure that the people in his constituency were healthy, and urged the citizenry, especially the aged, to undergo periodic medical checkups.

The screening was undertaken by a team of doctors, physicians, nurses, health workers at seven different centres within the constituency; Markaziya, Wataniyya, Masjidul Bayan, Anbariyya, Nurul Islam, Central Mosque and Hajia Mariam Alolo Centre.

The team registered and screened hundreds of residents at each centre for diabetes, hypertension, hepatitis B, malaria, and Tuberculosis.

Most of them were found to have high blood pressure, malaria, hepatitis 'B', jaundice, body weakness, and dental problems among others ailments.

Drugs were administered to those tested with minor infections while serious cases were referred to the hospital for tests and treatment after the exercise.

The beneficiaries expressed their happiness about the exercise and thanked Dr Anyars for the kind gesture.

They said this was the first of its kind in the constituency and prayed for him to be successful in his endeavours.
