Health related news in brief

DEAR EDITOR, I was pleased to read in the local media that the Young Women’s Parliamentary Group (YWPG) is continuing to take the lead in advocating to end cervical cancer among women and I thank them for their important work.

Cervical cancer is reportedly most common in women under the age of 50 and it is important to highlight the signs and symptoms women need to look out for when it comes to cervical cancer, the importance of screening and what more can be done to increase awareness of the disease.

Ten days ago, six nurses from the Atoifi School of nursing were awarded with their part two registered license at the Seventh Day Adventist’s Maranatha Hall on September 8.

Speaking during the nurse’s graduation ceremony, Mr Joe Adifaka, urged the newly registered nurses to face up to the challenges of their profession and to be centred on three core aims, the missions of caring, advocating and leadership

I’m sure all will wish the newly trained nurses successful careers in their chosen profession in the medical field.

In respect of the NRH, it is my understanding that Mr J Sy, the President of the SFA, has voluntarily donated two freezer containers to the hospital to be used as temporary mortuary facilities due to an urgent need for added mortuary space.

Yours sincerely
