NGOs promote Safe Use of Medicine in Bono Region of Ghana

A nongovernmental organization, DKT International, has held a day’s workshop to promote safe use of medicine in Bono Region of Ghana. The workshop held in Sunyane brought together academia, doctors, nurses, and personnel from Ghana Health Service.

The workshop aimed at minimizing errors in drug prescriptions and wrong usage. It is believed that some medical practitioners in Ghana misinform patients on the dosage of drug or the kind of medication to be taken for a particular ailment, resulting in further health challenges.

Meanwhile, Country Director of DKT International, Mario E. Flores, has urged government to promote the use of contraceptives to overcome HIV prevalence.
