First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo
First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, has appealed the private sector members and captains of industry to be active participants in Ghana’s malaria prevention efforts since “it is a certain way to support government in sustaining health and promoting wealth.”
First Lady called on the Ghanaian business sector “to rise to the occasion and embrace the goals of the Ghana-UK Private Sector Malaria Prevention Project and its Malaria Safe Initiative.”
Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo made the call after she had launched two initiatives which are intended to be a platform for encouraging active private sector participation in efforts at eradicating incidents of Malaria in Ghana.
The Private Sector Malaria Prevention Project and Malaria Safe Initiative is spearheaded by Johns Hopkins University Center for Communication Programs together with the Ghana National Malaria Control Programs.
It is targeted at getting businesses in Ghana to make their working environment malaria safe, their workers malaria safe, and supporting communities in Ghana to be malaria safe through creating awareness and championing malaria free campaigns within their institutions and Ghana as a whole.
First lady noted that malaria as a disease has overwhelming consequences, especially on pregnant women and children as well as the socio-economic developments of Ghana as a nation.
