Bliss GVS Pharma Ghana has donated medicines worth over GHC270,000 to the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital and Winneba Trauma Hospital, in the Central Region, in commemoration of the approaching World Malaria Day 2024.

The initiative, which is taking place for the fourth year in a row, is part of the company’s social responsibility and in line with efforts to eradicate malaria on the African continent.

This falls under Bliss GVS Pharma’s campaign, “Act for Africa: A Malaria-Free Continent”, which aims to provide crucial medical support to combat malaria, especially in vulnerable communities.

According to company officials, the gesture underlines their commitment to ensuring that every individual has access to high-quality medicines, especially in regions heavily affected by malaria.

The donation includes anti-malarials and other essential medicines such as LONART, GSUNATE, Fricks, Gacet and among others.

It was noted that the driving force behind this vision is the Managing Director of Bliss GVS Pharma, Mr. Gagan Sharma. “His unwavering belief in the fundamental right to healthcare motivates the company’s efforts to make a tangible difference in the fight against malaria,” officials said.

Pharm Rosemary Kyei, who led the donation, underlined the company’s commitment to malaria eradication, noting: “It is our social duty to contribute to ensuring that no one is deprived of essential healthcare, especially in the fight against diseases such as malaria.”

“Through our ‘Act for Africa’ campaign, we want to do our part to make Africa a malaria-free continent,” she added.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Cape Coast Teaching Hospital, Dr. Eric Kofi Nyedu, who received the items, expressed his deep gratitude for the kind gesture from Bliss GVS Pharma.

He said: “We are grateful for the generous donation of antimalarials and other essential medicines from Bliss GVS Pharma, which strengthens our ability to treat patients, especially during the peak malaria season and during health activities in villages around the Cape Coast enclave.”

“We have found that Bliss GVS is committed to improving the health of the community through our partnership and we will always recommend them,” he stated.

The donation of medicines worth an estimated GHC 276,000 symbolizes Bliss GVS Pharma’s commitment to corporate social responsibility and its belief in the transformative power of collective action.

The partnership with local healthcare facilities is seen as part of the company’s commitment to strengthen healthcare systems and improve access to malaria treatments.

In addition, the students from the Cape Coast Nursing and Midwifery College were involved in a health lecture, where resource persons provided them with topics on personal and vaginal hygiene, malaria prevention and spread.
