Medical Practitioners urged to be part of Governing Process
The MP for Manhyia, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has stressed the need for medical practitioners to be part of the governing process of the country. He was speaking at a dinner and awards ceremony organized by the Medical Students Association of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science andTechnology,
In Kumasi. It marked the successful end of a Reproductive Health Awareness campaign project, in Kumasi. Dr. Opuku Prempeh said even though he is a trained medical practitioner, he entered politics to contribute to the governance of the country.
He attributed the reduction of brain drain in the medical field to the involvement of medical practitioners in addressing the problem. Dr. Opoku Prempeh advised members of the Medical Students Association to be dedicated, committed and loyal to their duties.
They should also give their clients the needed respect. The Coordinator of the Project, Aurelia Asare said, the considerable morbidity and mortality associated with reproductive health matters in recent times is due mainly to ignorance.
She said topics treated focused on sexually transmitted infections, Hepatitis B, breast and prostate cancer. Sixteen institutions including Ghana Television were awarded for their support and contribution to the successful organization of the project.
