Pre-Med and Community Free Screening

During the end of 2016, HCDP GHANA together with other stake holders have come to the realization that its high time our Pre-Med project give back healthcare to rural communities a free medical screening since this has been a challenge in recent times due to rural urban transportation problem.

The team will raise $500 each as a fund to support the community free screening (Pre-Med Support Fund) This will be used to purchase eye drops and eye glasses which has never been supported by the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

Together with an optometrist, medical assistance and nurses, organize clinics and screen three rural communities for possible acute conjunctivitis and refractive conditions. Cases beyond our control would be referred to the nearest clinics or hospitals for further examination. We are looking at seeing 150 patients in a day and should be seeing 450 patients in total.

As part of our Pre-Med study program by our volunteers, donating their services to rural communities is key to add up to their career as medical students.

Activities include: Registration, Blood Pressure checking, body and eye screening and receiving free treatment sponsored by HCDP GHANA.
