A Medical Practitioner at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi, Dr. Patrick Camilo, has called for routine checkups to avoid stroke, high blood pressure and other ailments.

According to him, early detection of one’s BP status, can help protect one from stroke and cardiovascular diseases which account for about 20 percent of deaths in medical facilities globally.

Dr. Camilo was speaking in an interview in Kumasi during a sensitization on the causes, prevention and treatment of stroke as part of a programme to celebrate this year’s Men’s Fellowship Week of the Mount Moria’ Presbyterian Church at Adiebeba.
