Health ASA Savings and Loans intensifies malaria prevention initiative at free health screening event at Taifa

ASA Savings and Loans Ltd has shared mosquito nets with some Ghanaians as part of its efforts to prevent malaria.

The mosquito nets were given out during one of the company’s free health screening events at the taxi station at Taifa in the Greater Accra Region.


During the exercise, health professionals from Modern Care Clinic screened for diabetes, hypertension, hepatitis, and malaria in the market women and community members who showed up.

According to the lead doctor, Dr. Abdul Rahman, a lot of the people were diagnosed with malaria while some were seen to be on the borderline for diabetes.

In a conversation with the media, Dr. Abdul Rahman lauded ASA Savings and Loans for continuing with its initiative to share mosquito nets as part of the free health screening.

He said preventing malaria is better than treating the sickness.

“We are sharing the mosquito nets because of the malaria. The focus is on prevention because that is very important. We are encouraging people to take personal initiatives that will prevent malaria. As a good health practice we also advice that people should take their supper early. Check your lifestyle; exercise and check your diet for healthy living,” Dr. Abdul Rahman advised.


Speaking to the media, ASA Savings and Loans Taifa Business Centre Branch Manager, Madam Cynthia Emefa Appiah indicated that it is part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.

She said the Savings and Loans company believes it is important to give back to the communities where they operate continuously.

She assured that ASA Savings and Loans will also continue supporting women's businesses to help them grow and achieve financial independence.

One of the clients of ASA Savings and Loans who benefited from the free health screening, Gifty Nyame heaped praise on the company for putting together the exercise.

She said, “It was free and it will help me know my health status. God bless them, they help us and we also help. They should also continue to do this for us.


She encouraged women who are into trading to work with ASA Savings and Loans to benefit from their loans, adding they come with the smallest interest rates in the country.

Just as has been done in the past years, ASA Savings and Loans Company Ltd has been big in giving back to the community.

The company is doing this not just through free health screening exercises but through donations to hospitals, orphanage homes, as well as scholarships for needy but brilliant students.
