Food vendors screened for diseases

kaneshie-marketThe Asante-Akim North District Environmental Health Directorate has launched an exercise to screen all food vendors in the area of diseases.

This is to ensure that only those with “clean bill of health” are allowed to sell food to the people.

Mr. Ben Bronya, the District Environmental Health Officer, said about 600 of the vendors had already been screened and issued with certificates to operate.

They are determined to cover all the communities in the district and that anybody found to be operating without medical certification would be prosecuted.

Their goal, he said, is to help prevent communicable and infectious diseases.
