for AFRICAN HEALTH NOW
 NEW YORK, NY


African Health Now is a US based NGO that promotes the health and health care of people of Pan African descent by providing information and accessibility to resources through the use of health fairs, workshops, conferences and on-going programs.

Since 2006, African Health Now has conducted free health fairs in various communities (Pokuase, Tema Station, Kumasi), throughout Ghana West Africa. Having serviced over 4000 people, this video is a culmination of our experience in Ghana and the wonderful people we have been blessed to help. Our fairs focus on some of the major silent killers in developing countries such as hypertension, diabetes, breast cancer, and malnutrition--being able to provide basic primary health care and fundemental health care education to some of Ghana's neediest helps combat the rising number of deaths due to NCD's.

On December 1, 2013 (World AIDS Day), African Health Now in partnership with Flirt with the World will conduct the largest health initiative in our history. This three location fair (Accra Mall, Medina Market, Labadi Beach) will focus on engaging communities across Accra in dialogues about safe sexual behavior as well as provide free primary health screenings. Our aim for December 1st, is to reach another 4000 individuals but not without your help.

Dear All,

Though we only reached 14.9% of our financial goal, we were able to make 100% impact on the lives of the people we set out to help.

On Sunday, December 1st in celebration of World AIDS Day AHN, Flirt With The World and YMAU distributed 12, 000 free condoms and AHN screened 350 residents of Accra's Agbogbloshie Market--which houses Ghana's largest migrant population.

With support from volunteers from 37 Military Nurses & medical students and various other organizations the one day health fair and 4 location condom giveaway was a huge success. And for that I want to say THANK YOU! as without your continued support none of the work we do would be possible.

There is an African proverb which says "If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together" We have so far to go and we can only go with your help.

Please support African Health Now and thank you so much to all of you, who have already done so in so many ways.
