The health screening exercise was organized as part of the company's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).


The exercise which was organised by the Alajo Business Center of Asa Savings and Loans Limited for its clients and the public was aimed at ensuring good health was not compromised in these times of Covid 19 pandemic and the prevalence of Monkey Pox.

The Area Manager in charge of supervision of Alajo Business Center who was present at the meeting emphasised that the average Ghanaian do not seek medical check-up until he or she is sick hence the need for such free health screening programs across the country to bridge that gap in health care delivery.

He further noted that financial difficulties in these times even make the situation worse.

The Health Screening had medical experts from Firdalh's Diagnostics executing the exercise.


They advised the patients in attendance on how to take care of themselves medically and urged them not to patronise unprescribed medicine to prevent drug abuse which could be dangerous to their health.

The beneficiaries were also advised to take physical exercise seriously as it promotes good health for the human body.

The exercise helped in the detection of various diseases as the beneficiaries received free medication as well as other necessary health care information.


Participants found to have chronic illnesses were also advised to seek further medical treatment and attention

Asa Savings and Loans Ltd after its latest free health screening exercise, has assured that it will continue to organise such programmes for its clients and the public to improve their access to quality health care.
