Last week he spoke eloquently and articulately on Fontomfrom FM, USA in everyday language for listeners to understand issues affecting our healthcare system in Ghana and provided an insight into the NHIS, having completed a voluntary program of service to the Sunyani hospital for 2 weeks last Summer. He provided his services free of charge and took along 12 of his colleagues. He trained in Korle-Bu Ghana and has worked in various places including South Africa. He is currently working at a hospital in the United Kingdom. He has participated in programs and provided information regularly on various community radio stations including WBLS and GFM Radio, London. He has also produced CDs, tapes and DVDs on a range of health issues affecting children in black and minority ethnic communities such as malaria. Some of the CDs are in Twi. He hopes to translate them to other Ghanaian languages and dialects.
Next week's topic will be on the causes, treatment and prevention of malaria.
