Following the widespread of swine flu and meningitis in some SHS in the country, the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) through its health initiatives has partnered National Health Students Association of Ghana (NASHAG), to deploy 480 health graduates and student volunteers across the country as part of their efforts to complement the containment and measures by sector Ministries, awaiting the arrival and administering of vaccines across affected schools.

The deployment exercise would cover both affected schools and schools yet to record a case of the outbreak. It is categorized under two phases; Emergency Phase 1 and Emergency Phase 2.

NATIONAL HEALTH STUDENTS’ ASSOCIATION OF GHANA
NAHSAG PARTNERS NUGS FOR DEPLOYMENT OF HEALTH GRADUATES AND VOLUNTEERS ACROSS SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS

The National Health Students’ Association of Ghana (NAHSAG) has finalized arrangements with the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) to deploy over 480 health volunteers across the country to embark on intensive campaigns on the outbreak of H1N1 and Meningitis
in Senior High Schools.

This has been necessitated by the recent outbreak of H1N1 and Meningitis in some SHS across
the country claiming over 22 lives. We believe massive health education and promotion would greatly help in the prevention of these outbreaks in unaffected schools while containment
protocols are emphasized in affected schools as we await the arrival of vaccines to remedy the situation.

Health graduates and volunteers with in depth knowledge in the pathogenesis, Symptoms, mode of transmission, treatment and preventive measures of the conditions shall be recruited under the EMERGENCY PHASE 1 and EMERGENCY PHASE 2 initiatives.

We wish to call on the Ministries of Health and Education once again to expedite actions to contain these outbreaks and commit to saving the lives of the poor SHS students as any further deaths will be a blight on our conscience as a nation for absolute negligence.

Health graduates and volunteers are encouraged to contact the President of NAHSAG (0243933028) for further details. We count on your cooperation.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Osei-Yeboah
President

Addai Lydia Acheampomaa
General Secretary
