WAAF Team members getting ready to test the peopleThe West Africa AIDS Foundation (WAAF) joined numerous health organisations in Accra to provide HIV Testing Services (HTS) on Ghana’s Independence Day which fell on the 6th March, 2016 at the Nationalism Park opposite the Independence Square, Accra.
The HTS provided was part of the National Launch of the First 90 campaign which is under the 90-90-90 agenda by 2020 which was set by the UNAIDS.
HIV Testing Services
HIV testing services provided on Ghana’s Independence Day started exactly at 9:00 am at the Nationalism Park opposite the Independence square where the parade was held.
West Africa AIDS Foundation team members set up their booth at the main entrance with the idea of mobilizing more people to test.
After the independence parade, WAAF was able to mobilize and test more than 300 people and screened about 30 people on TB.

The members of the Ghana’s parliament select committee on health have undertaken to become advocates for TB Control in Ghana. Nineteen (19) of the twenty two (22) member committee of parliament have signed the Global Declaration that urges the signatories to commit to use all the means at their disposal to urge sustained action from the government of Ghana to secure the necessary international and domestic resources to combat tuberculosis, and to press for the prioritization of the disease on political agenda.

takoradi new

As part of the Western Region’s strategies to see the D.I.C. functioning better, the staff at the Takoradi Office organized an outreach service for drivers at the Harbor Taxi Station in Takoradi. The education piece of the outreach focused on talking to the drivers about what it means to have a healthy blood pressure and healthy glucose levels. We talked also about what can happen if glucose and blood pressure become too high or too low.
