Pharmaceutical Society Supports Health Sector
The President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana, Dr Alex Dodoo, has observed that the health sector of Ghana is poised to take an active and significant role in moving the country towards attaining a middle income status as soon as possible.
He said this yesterday at the launch of the 73rd Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Society in Accra. The meeting, which is held every year, constitutes in essence the general assembly of the Society that provides ample opportunity for pharmacists to deliberate on issues of national importance.
It also offers the opportunity to meet old friends, socialise, wind down, and discuss several issues with regard to professional, scientific, political and social importance.
The theme for this year's AGM is 'Role of Pharmacy in Enhancing Access to Regenerative Health and Nutrition' with the Hon Rtd Major Courage Quashigah as the thematic speaker at the Radach Memorial Centre, Tamale in the Northen Region. It is scheduled for Wednesday, 13th to Sunday, 17th August, 2008.
Dr. Dodoo said this year's meeting will come up with workable suggestions and recommendations to ensure that all Ghanaians have access to regenerative health and nutrition services.
The Chairman of the AGM Planning Committee, Mr Kenneth Agbodza, said the committee is committed to ensuring the success of the meeting for Ghana to benefit immensely from it for sustainable development.
