Allied health professions council registrar calls on health personnel to assist in fight against drug abuse

The Acting Registrar of Allied Allied Health Professions Council of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Samuel Yaw Opoku, has called on health personnel to put in their best towards the nation’s fight against drug abuse.

Speaking at the 2nd graduation ceremony of Carest College of Health at Hohoe yesterday, he urged health personnel to stay away from social vices and adhere to the tenets of the profession.

He also called on them to always read publications on health so as to better their understanding of the profession.

The Executive Director of National Vocational Institute, Mawusi Nudekor Awinty appealed to stakeholders to support health care institutions so as to improve upon healthcare in the country.

In a speech read on her behalf by Selina Adjabeng, she admonished the 32 graduates not to depend solely on government for employment but venture into promotion of good health in rural communities.

She called on parents to support their wards who want to venture into vocational education and ignore the notion that vocational education is a preserve for the unintelligent.

Member of Parliament for Hohoe Constituency, Dr. Bernice Adiku Heloo in a speech read on her behalf by her aide, Randy Siaku, called on health professionals to research into medical negligence, share the outcome with legislators so they can promulgate laws to address them.
