Medihelp WEWA health awareness project

All is set for the upcoming Medihelp West Europe, West Africa (WEWA), Mr Frank Agyemang-Prempeh, president and Co founder of Medihelp WEWA has said in a release.

And the health awareness event is expected to take off from April 17 to 18 this year in Ghana, Nungua in Accra.

A release from Medihelp WEWA stated that MediHelp aims to bring together actors from West-Europe and West-Africa to organize international solidarity projects in the field of health.

According to the release, the motive of the event is to deepen the consciousness about some health conditions and create more awareness about MediHelp, its objectives in achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 3 which states

“Ensure healthy lives and promote wellbeing for all at all ages”.

The project initiative was based on the observation that most people in the Municipality are battling with eyes, ears and other health problems which is affecting their day to day activities.

It will be an event that will create opportunities for various stakeholders (students, policy makers, volunteers, leads of NGOs, etc) to share their perspectives on the bottlenecks surrounding the journey to achieving the SDG 3, propose possible remedies and make general conclusions on the way forward.

It will also be an avenue to share the progresses made so far towards attaining the SDG 3.

Day 1 (Friday) of the program will have a Panel Discussion

Great speakers from different countries who are deeply inclined to the motive and the theme of the event will make their perspectives through a presentation on air (Television/ Radio).

The thematic areas shall be the problems in achieving the SDG 3, the role of the NGOs in achieving the SDG 3, how to get appropriate funding for projects, amongst other impactful submissions.

Debate by NUGS – The National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) is the largest student organization in the country, and a great stakeholder of the SDG. The student body will be needed to share their intellectual perspectives on the theme through competitive debates.

The leadership of NUGS will do fair scouting and present not more than four (4) universities for a very impactful debate on the theme. This debate seek intellectual – based and verifiable facts from the students as far as the SDG 3, its bottlenecks and solutions are concerned.

It will be a great feeling where selected Universities across the country engage in a competitive intellectual debate for honourary awards and bragging rights.

On the second day, (Saturday) a health walk will precede the day’s activities.

The MediHelp team and the people of the Nungua Municipality will be parading through the principal streets of the community, creating awareness about the upcoming event.

Health Talk: There shall be health talk by qualified health personnel on “sex” and “food & nutrition” and other common diseases which are predominant in the area; outlining the prevention and the curative measures.

The information sessions target some specific problems in the region like safe sex practices, overweight and diabetes.

Health Screening: There will be a health screening for the entire Nungua community, where health personnel will screen and offer health advise accordingly.

The exercise will focus on comprehensive general health examination, eye health examination, ear, nose and throat examination, oral examination (dental), Nutritional health assessment and some laboratory investigations (Hb, RDT etc).

Impacts

This event is projected to touch about One Thousand lives (young and old) in the Nunguan Municipality.

It is also estimated to reach out to about 500 Senior High School and Tertiary Students across the country.

Apart from the immediate impact the health talk and the health screening on the immediate community of Nungua and its environs, this huge number, who some may be made ambassadors and promoters of the agenda will go a run way to get us close to achieving the long term SDG 3.

Already, MediHelp WEWA has done several projects in Africa and across the world, in consonance with their mission.

They have provided support to some health facilities in Africa, visited and donated some goods to orphanage homes, engaged communities in health screening and health education, sensitized pertinent audiences through the media, amongst other activities undertaken in the pursuit of their long term goal, SDG 3.

MediHelp has over the period also scouted committed volunteers and ushered them through various capacity building and training to equip them fully.

The organization has also engaged the policy makers of the SDG 3, International Organizations, and other personalities who believes in the change, in several forums to dialogue on the challenges and the ways forward.

Most of these events have given a positive feedback which has motivated our subsequent events.
