VIDA Provides Medical Care to Africa

Tuesday, August 13, 2013 mick

VIDA salutes our volunteers that recently worked selflessly to provide medical care to the Ghanaian public.

VIDA volunteers from the Temple University School of Medicine and VIDA Medical Coordinator Dr. Alvin Wang collaborated to treat rural Ghanaians in medical need.

VIDA has partnered with DIVOG and the Free Medical Outreach Programme is to provide healthcare services in remote and deprived rural communities.

The following were tangible outcomes of the Free Medical Outreach Program;

There was an increased access to medical services as 130 patients were given first aid and referred to the hospital.

There was also free consultation and medication. During the five days at the three communities 489 patients were seen by doctors and received medication.

Patients’ awareness on health issues also increased through health education

Drugs worth 1500 US Dollars was donated to Ave-Dakpa community Health Centre and distributed to other Chps compounds.
