The Telecel Ghana Foundation’s Rural Ultrasound train made a stop at the Bosome Freho district of the Ashanti Region. The initiative, which is a part of the Foundation’s Connected Health programmes, reached 117 women in Tesebo No. 2 and 82 women in Nsuta, all within the Bosome Freho District in the Ashanti Region.

By detecting potential complications early, Telecel Ghana Foundation is helping reduce maternal and infant mortality rates, giving these mothers a fighting chance for healthy pregnancies and deliveries. This ongoing initiative has become a cornerstone of the Foundation’s community and health outreach efforts.

“We believe that no mother should lose life while giving life. That is why access to prenatal care is essential for both mother and child’s health,” said Rita Agyeiwaa Rockson, Head of Foundation, Sustainability, and External Communications at Telecel Ghana. “The goal of the Rural Ultrasound initiative is to bridge the healthcare gap in rural areas, ensuring expectant mothers receive the needed prenatal attention and some essential items during pregnancy, regardless of their location or financial standing.”

Beyond providing ultrasound scans, the initiative emphasizes educating women about pregnancy health, fostering awareness, and promoting proactive healthcare management. By identifying potential complications early, the Telecel Ghana Foundation aims to reduce maternal and infant mortality rates and support healthier pregnancies and births.

The recent activation in Tesebo No. 2 and Nsuta highlights the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to maternal health. These free ultrasound scans, a part of the Foundation’s Connected Health program, are a game-changer for mothers in underserved communities, as they help to bridge the healthcare access gap and alleviate the financial burden on these women.

Telecel Ghana Foundation is committed to supporting maternal health across Ghana and contributing its quota to the SDG Goal 3, Target 3.1, which is to reduce the global maternal mortality ratio to less than 70 per 100,000 live births by 2030.,” added Rita Agyeiwaa Rockson. “Through our efforts, we hope to make a tangible difference in the lives of many women and their families.”

Telecel Ghana Foundation’s Rural Ultrasound Initiative is a shining example of their dedication to improving lives. As the foundation prioritizes healthcare interventions, it anticipates further positive outcomes benefiting more women and families in the future.
