Ebonyi Former PHCDA Board Chair Charges Public on Hepatitis B/C, Cervical cancer free medical screenings



The immediate past Chairman of Ebonyi State Primary Healthcare Development Agency Board, Dr Okoro Uchenna Okoro has advised Government functionaries as well as all senior civil servants in the state to avail themselves of State Government approved free test and treatment of Hepatitis B & C, and Cervical cancer screening going on in the state.

Dr Okoro who gave the charge in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital said the free test was a rare opportunity that should be maximized by the public as it presents positive carriers with the benefit of being treated if dictated through the screening, even when they are at early stages.

The former Board Chair appreciated the state Governor, Chief Engr David Nweze Umahi for his Health friendly policies which according to him have demystified a number of health challenges which confronted people of the state before his assumption of office as Governor.

He reminded the public that the screening was ongoing at the Government House Clinic, old Government House, Abakaliki for Hepatiti B & C, and at the National Obstretic Fistula Centre for cervical cancer screening.

He therefore enjoined all to make haste and access the free medical screenings for their commensurate benefits.
