University Of Ghana Nursing And Midwifery Students Association (UGHANMSA) Health Week (24- 30TH March, 2019); All That You Need To Know!!

It is yet another year for the nursing and midwifery students of the premier University to once again not play the dull game card as they have always known how to blend their many courses per semester with extracurricular activities.

This year, the theme for the celebration is dubbed PREVENTING HEPATITIS B INFECTION IN GHANA; THE ROLE OF THE STUDENT / GRADUATE NURSE

Hepatitis B is inflammation of the liver cells caused by the Hepatitis B virus.

The world health organization posits that Ghana has a prevalence rate of 8% Hepatitis B infection, this can be translated literally to mean that in every 100 people, 8 will be infected with Hepatitis B virus, this figure is certainly not good for the growth of our country, Ghana.

The Center for Disease Control states that Hepatitis B spreads 50- 100 times faster than HIV/ AIDS, isn’t this a cause to worry?

The good news however, is that Hepatitis B has a vaccine that can prevent this infection from spreading amongst people.

It is in view of the above that we chose this theme to create the awareness on UG campus through education. We will also organize free screening on Hepatitis B during the health week and provide subsidized vaccination for students on campus.

ACTIVITIES FOR THE WEEK INCLUDE;

Sunday, 24-3-19: Gospel Rock show at the forecourt of the nursing school, Nurses Christian Fellow will trill you to amazing performances.

Monday, 25- 3-19: Rep your school and a seminar on Hepatitis B; we will be having well resourced persons to provide more scientific knowledge in the area of Hepatitis B, don’t miss out, make a date with us.

Tuesday, 26-3-19: Official tuesday, a public lecture and a quiz competition among the various departments at the nursing and midwifery school. It has always been competitive!

Wednesday, 27-3-19: This is the grand durbar / Hepatitis B screening at the school, come and witness the nursing christian fellowship (NCF) display their dancing, singing and all sort of skills that will amaze you. Health experts and dignitaries from all walks of life would also grace the occasion.

Thursday, 28-3-19; Health screening; as usual, we will go to a community within the region to provide free screening, health education and counseling.

Friday, 29-3-19; Ladies summit/ UGHANMSA goes African Print; This day has been reserved for our beautiful ladies, there will be high profile women to engage all UG ladies in a panel discussion on important issues. Students will also look best in their colourful African print.

Saturday, 30-3-19; The Climax!; Aponkye cup, come and witness both men and women as they battle on for the bragging rights in the game of soccer. There will also be all sort of indoor and fun games on that day.

So you see, the right place to be from 24- 30th of March is certainly School of Nursing UG. Don’t miss out!
