Accra, Oct. 21,GNA –
The Abu Bonsra Foundation, a non-governmental organization, has in
collaboration with the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS) medical team,
held a health talk-show to
  create
awareness and educate the public on cervical cancer.

Statistics worldwide

In Ghana, cervical
cancer is the most leading cause of death among women.

As a result, Dr
Princess Abu Bonsra and her Foundation thought it right to educate women and
men about the disease.

The Abu Bonsra
Foundation invited medical doctors from different countries and different
fields on the talk-show to educate the masses on the ‘Silent Killer.’

The medical officers
included Dr Joel Otis Amankwah, a medical officer at the Ridge hospital, Dr
Mabel Morrison Arthur, a masters student of public health in U.K, Dr Prince Abu
Bonsra, a final year medical student.

They joined hands
with Dr Princess Abu Bonsra and her Foundation to raise awareness on cervical
cancer.

Meanwhile, the
Foundation is seeking to regularly organise free health screenings on cervical
cancer for the less privileged women especially in developing countries.

The Abu Bonsra
Foundation urged all medical doctors at home and abroad to support the initiative
to improve the health of women in the country and abroad.
