Speaking to newsmen on Thursday (16 May), Dr Aboagye said the committee working on the initiative is almost done with it stakeholder engagement.

 ‘Now we are offering every Ghanaian the opportunity to go to any health facility on their date of birth or month of birth to at least check their vitals once a month.

 “We are almost done with the work and we will be starting very soon … we have really worked hard to ensure this intervention is actually implemented at the earliest possible time.”

 “So we have even cut some of the processes that we use to make sure we implement this, the committee is at the tail end of doing the stakeholder engagements then implementation will start. So, for me, that will be good news and it will revolutionise our healthcare architecture in such a way that we will reduce some of these diseases and non-communicable diseases,” Dr Aboagye said.
