The project seeks to provide free Hepatitis B screenings and vaccinations to all individuals within the Effutu Municipality and beyond and also support Hepatitis B pregnant women with free Immunoglobulin to prevent mother-to-child.
The event was attended by the MCE for Effutu, Hon. Kassim Zubairu, Paramount Chief of Effutu, Neenyi Ghartey VII, Dr. Prah George, Medical Director of Winneba Trauma and Specialist hospital and Madam Mariatu Seidu, Municipal Director of Health Services.
