RE: The Ghanaian Genome Seminar: Understanding Ghanaian Genetics And The Need To Seek Genetic Counseling

in StemSocial7 months ago

Well this insight to SC turned out to be interesting. Thankful to science for these discoveries, didn't have such depth on the matter. Africa has been long plagued with superstition, it's about time we faced reality.


Absolutely. To rid Africa of this plague, the education needs to be targeted not just at the young, youth and literate, but to include even the old, aged and illiterate. I wish there was a way to be able to translate these seminars to the elderly and old who are saturated with superstitious believes. I even thought of recommending to the good Professor that their team get with them a translator every time they had these seminars, and that they need to get down to the most rural communities and have several discussions of this nature with them. It’s surprising the things our people still believe even in this modern age of science and technology.

I couldn't agree more. Rural townhall meetings.
Pamphlets, bulletins, flyers written and illustrated in native language would also suffice.

Maybe we should be part of the team:)
