Ghana: Nurses and Midwives in Central region to hold annual week celebration by katty : May 29, 2017, 08:25:22 PM
Nurses and Midwives Week, an event dedicated to honor the individuals known as the heart of health care as well as recognizing the important roles and the contributions they have made to society, will be celebrated by trainee’s and staff in Central Region from May 29 – June 4.

The week consist of a series of activities and gatherings which aims at bringing nurses and midwives together to promote health in the region.



The Week-long celebration dubbed “Health implications of Galamsey and the attainment of sustainable Development goals, Nurses and Midwives acting in One voice with stakeholders” will feature approximately all districts in the region.

Explaining the need for this year’s celebration, the Public Relations Officer for Registered Nurses and Midwives Association at Cape Coast Teaching Hospital, Isaac Dordaa, told Class News’ Maxwell Attah in an interview that “We believe that the chiefs alone cannot fight the menace of galamsay, we also believe Politicians cannot effectively do it and we know men with an ammunition cannot do it better. The reason why Nurses and Midwives have to come in is because when we speaks all will know the health implications of Galamsay.”

He added “Some People are thinking they can provide food from the galamsay earnings but they don’t know they can work and have money to buy food but they will not have people who will eat it”

He further stated that chemicals such as Mercury use in Galamsay has a lot of health hazards in that it can easily cross the blood brain barrier and affect the Central Nervous System

Mr. Dordaa, a registered Nurse bemoaned the soaring kidney disease and nervous system disorders  recording these days could be as a result of Galamsay.

As part of the celebration, Nurses and Midwives numbering over Six hundred (600) are expected to match through the principal Streets of Cape Coast to create awareness of the health implications of galamsay and the attainment of sustainable development goals.

Other activities to be embarked on includes donations to Cape Coast School of Deaf, workshop on carrier progression for Nurses and Midwives, inter facility games and health screening at Abura, a suburb of Cape Coast.
