Hundreds of people have thronged the Prempeh Assembly Hall in Kumasi as the Okyeame Kwame Foundation and MDS Lancet Laboratories provides free screening and vaccination against Hepatitis B.
The program which was scheduled to begin at 8:00 am had people seated at the venue hours before the set time. Okyeame Kwame and Dr. Paul Sekyere-Nyantakyi of MDS Lancet Laboratories took turns to educate the audience on the dangers involved with contracting the disease and the need to screen and vaccinate against it.
Screening is being provided for all persons who attended the program after which vaccination follows. Those who tested positive also receive counselling from Dr. Paul Sekyere-Nyantakyi.
