In 2021, AngloGold Ashanti held a health outreach day in the Binsere community near its Obuasi mine. The outreach day was a collaboration between AngloGold Ashanti, the AngloGold Ashanti Health Foundation and the Obuasi Municipal District and the Obuasi East District Health Directorates.
More than half of the children and adults who attended the day were women. Everyone received medicines, free treatment and advise on how to live a healthy lifestyle.
The outreach day is one of several health interventions that AngloGold Ashanti is rolling out to address health-related issues across its communities in Ghana.
These programmes are designed to improve health education, basic health screening and access to health and medical services.
