The Airborne Force Medical Centre (ABFMC) of the Ghana Armed Forces in the Northern Region has undertaken medical outreach events in two communities in the Sagnarigu Municipality to screen residents for various ailments.

The ABFMC partnered the Marie Stopes Ghana and the Ghana Red Cross Society to undertake the two-day event, which ended on Saturday to improve on medical care for the people.

Residents of Yilonayili and Kogni in the Sagnarigu Municipality were the beneficiaries.

Squadron Leader Maxwell Atindaana, Senior Medical Officer at the ABFMC, elaborated on the exercise in the communities, saying it was also to improve on the cordial relationship between the military and the civilian population in the Municipality.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
