Challenge

The Health menace in Ghana West Africa has risen to the apex. Alarming Cancer cases are recorded, HIV/AIDS is scuffled at its neck, Hepatitis B is rising rapidly, high numbers of the population are lost over Malaria and sadly more young people and adults are habitually and addicted to substance abuse. Substance abuse is currently a worrying situation in Ghana, more of the energetic young people are hooked unto the use drugs.

Solution

With respect to research conducted by our team respectively, the bases of most of these menace is arose from lack of information. It stood out that the majority don't have information on the causes, preventive measures and treatments to these diseases. Hence, Goodman Impact Network has it on its piloting phase of the project to educate, sensitize, train and screen men and women in Local Communities, Institutions and Organizations.
