Vodafone Ghana has once again opened entries for questions for the flagship health initiative, “Healthline”, calling on Ghanaians to text their questions to health matters shortcode 1788 across all networks.

For the next four weeks, the shortcode 1788 would be open to everyone to text in their questions on any health topic they are interested in.

The questions will be answered by a panel of doctors in the season two of the pioneering television show, which captured the hearts and minds of Ghanaians last year.

 In an address to the media, the Head of Corporate Communications at Vodafone Ghana, Carmen Bruce-Annan, explained the need for people to text in their health questions, saying,”the questions people will ask will determine the content of the show. We want to empower people to take control of their own health practices and this starts with giving them accurate, reliable information which is relevant to them.”

She said in the last season of Healthline, over 10,000 questions were submitted by the public and were used to develop the contents of both the television and the radio show.

She was optimistic that more questions would be received from the public this year and the television programme would be adapted to address the many health concerns of the public.

Ms Bruce-Annan reaffirmed  Vodafone’s commitment to making a difference in the health sector in Ghana and added that members of the public can also send their questions by visiting the Healthline  facebook page at www.facebook.com/ vodafone healthline.

He said knowledge about common health issues and practices could improve lifestyle and even save lives, hence its importance for the public to provide accurate and reliable information.

He lauded the public’s reaction to the show last year, indicating that there was the need for the initiative to continue as long as the public showed interest in it.
The television show will, however, be coming soon on all major television networks.
