Long life Africa and Ghana Health Service has been very good partners. In 2013 we waged a campaign dubbed “ Hepatitis Gargantuan Danger “ in the Volta region and was nearly stopped by the then district director of the South Tongu District because hepatitis then was very unpopular. We were then very resilient in our efforts so we proceeded to the Regional Director  of Health Services who reasoned with us and wrote a letter directing all district directors and medical superintendents to collaborate with us and fully support us. This gave us the opportunity to collaborate with the Ghana Community Radio Network to carry out a very successful awareness campaign across the region. The Then Municipal Director of Aflao and the Municipal Assembly also collaborated with us to successfully screen and vaccinate people within the municipality.

Another campaign was launched in hard to reach senior high schools in 2016 along the Oti enclave of the Volta region. It was at this point that Long life Africa was able to conduct a research in Krachi senior high school and discovered a very high prevalence of 14.2% among the senior high students. This finding was published in the School of Public Health, University of Ghana. Please visit University of Ghana Digital Collections for details. Long life Africa is now embarking on resource mobilization both locally and internationally to screen and vaccinate all senior high students free of charge.
