Provident Insurance partners KBTH to carry out breast screening

 Provident Insurance in partnership with the Breast Cancer Unit at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital (KBTH) at the weekend carried out an education and screening exercise on breast cancer at the hospital.

The screening which took place at the Surgical Unit Park of the hospital attracted hundreds of people; both women and men.

Provident Insurance has planned several corporate social responsibility activities to mark its 40th year in business.

The event was the second to be organised by the company in the month.

In collaboration with the Breast Care International, the company has organized a similar event for students of the Accra College of Education.

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Provident Insurance, Mr Michael Justice Ashong, said the exercise formed part of the corporate social investment of the company.

“Provident cares about our women and girls that is why we thought it wise as a company to partner with Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital to conduct this screening exercise in order to save lives” he said.

Mr Ashong said breast cancer could be deadly but early detection with treatment could help save lives.

“We believe this screening will be very helpful for the detection of early cases,” Mr Ashong, said.

Dr Josephine Nsaful, surgical doctor at the Breast Unit of Korle-Bu, expressed gratitude to Provident Insurance for supporting the cause to fight breast cancer by joining forces with the hospital for this year’s awareness and screening exercise.  

As part of the 40th anniversary of Provident Insurance, the company earlier this month made a donation to the Princess Marie Louise Children Hospital and has also conducted a blood donation drive in conjunction with the National Blood Service Ghana and the National Insurance Commission.
