Akosua Manu, the deputy CEO of the National Youth Authority (NYA) and NPP parliamentary aspirant of Adentan constituency, has started a free healthcare programme to cater for the health and physical needs of the constituents.
The health screening initiative, dubbed ‘Kozie cares medical outreach’ began on Thursday (14 September) and expected to end on Friday (22 September).
Kozie, as she is affectionately called, advised the constituents to take advantage of the health outreach to improve their wellbeing, adding the programme is her contribution to accessible and quality healthcare for residents of Adentan.
The healthcare exercise includes check-ups and free national health insurance registration and renewals for 16 electoral areas in Adentan.
The programme is taking place in areas such as Otanor, Nmai Djorn, Adjiringano, Ogbojo, Nii Ashale East and West, New Adentan East and West, Man-Hee, Gbentanaa North and South, New Legon, Loose, Amrahia Marhejor, among others.
According to her, healthcare is a fundamental right that should not be compromised and is determined to work tirelessly to ensure that the healthcare needs of the people she aspires to represent are met.
Kozie said that this effort is aimed at placing a premium on health and adequately preparing for the tasks ahead of the party. She also touched on the importance of regular check-ups, which many Ghanaians often neglect, and her approach to bringing healthcare services to the doorstep of the people.
As part of the health outreach, the people were also given free eye screening.
Manu is optimistic of winning the primaries to eventually become the lawmaker on the ticket of the governing New Patriotic Party.
