Research Dissemination and Community Outreach

Media activity Start Date: November 14, 2022
End Date: November 14, 2022
Location: Sunyani, Bono Region, Ghana

In response to a dearth of population-level data on NCDs in the Africa Region, the Screen-and-Treat Research Group at the Centre for Research in Applied Biology, Sunyani, Ghana partnered with the Ghana Health Service and key stakeholders to develop a strategy to conduct periodic community surveillance studies to identify and assess risk variables in the Sunyani Area and map at-risk individuals to care in order to contribute to the national NCD control efforts. This collaborative effort was called the Screen-and-Treat NCD Survey of Sunyani.

On 14th November, our research group will collaborate with the Ghana Health Service to launch a report on the successful implementation of the WHO STEPwise approach to NCD risk-factor survey with the general public through a series of radio engagements and publish the report on the internet to highlight the status of modifiable NCD risk factors in the Region.
