Awareness and Sensitization

As part of our awareness strategy, AlzGH team participated regularly on Radio and Television programmes to create awareness and sensitize the public on dementia, using live-broadcast and phone-in to reach out to the public. AlzGH team was hosted on Viasat1 TV and TV3 separately to educate and sensitize the entire public. Discussions were centered on the signs and symptoms of dementia and other related disorders, their diagnosis, the role of government and the civil society in combating and managing it in Ghana.

One thought on “Awareness and Sensitization

  1. ideally although this program was aired still the lay person in Ghana is unaware of this condition. i suggest much needs to be done within our urban and rural communities using our psychiatric nurses and the media( especially “U tv” which has a lot of viewers due to their use of the local language to communicate information.
