The West African Centre for Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens (WACCBIP), carried out its maiden medical outreach programme which benefited over one thousand residents in the Ablekuma South and West Municipalities and Ga West Municipality of Accra, Ghana.

This initiative falls in line with WACCBIP’s goal of creating awareness towards the prevention and control of infectious diseases.  It also ties in with the ACE Project’s goal of impacting on societies, through its centers.

Beneficiaries were screened and tested for Tuberculosis, hypertension, blood sugar levels, diabetes, malaria and HIV/AIDS.

The AAU commends WACCBIP for undertaking this laudable community service and entreat other Centres to undertake and continue undertaking similar initiatives aimed at positively impacting on societies.
