Over the next 13-weeks Ghanaians will be informed on a wide range of pertinent health issues including Heart diseases, Sickle Cell, Diabetes, Hypertension, Sex, Cancer, Allergies and Infertility, with in-depth discussion by the doctors on the panel.
Commenting on the new Season, the Chief Marketing Officer of Vodafone Ghana, Uche Ofodile, said: “Through Healthline, Vodafone Ghana has brought smiles t0 tens of homes and communities across the country. Seeing people in need of urgent medical attention transformed from that look of despair to a renewed sense of purpose has been a very emotional and rewarding journey for us”.
