Traditional Medicine to Be Used at ‘All’ Health Centers

first_imgThe Liberian Government, through the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, has finally launched a five-year plan on the usage of herbs (traditional/country medicine) in all health centers across the country.  The program is a part of the country’s new health care system.The Health Ministry, through the Division of Complementary Medicine, the Liberia Medical and Dental Council (LMDC), the Complementary Board and the Traditional Medicine Federation of Liberia (TRAMEDFOL) developed the plan, called the National Traditional Medicine Policy and Strategy.  The plan will run from 2015-2019.During the formal launch of the five-year policy and strategy on traditional medicine, the Assistant Health Minister for Planning and Policy, Mr. Benedict C. Harris, said the national traditional medicine policy and strategy would complement conventional medical practices in Liberia.During the launch over the weekend in Monrovia, Minister Harris said the process to develop this policy was consultative and participatory at all levels of the stakeholders within the country and it included a detailed situational analysis of traditional medicine in Liberia and a desk review of relevant documents and the regional policy framework on the alignment of the  West African Health Organization (WAHO) countries’ policy harmonization.Assistant Minister Harris, the developer of the Policy, said the Policy’s essential components include leadership and governance, building human resource capacity, financing, botanical research and development, manufacturing and infrastructure.“To achieve Liberia’s vision of becoming a middle-income country, the goal of this policy is . . . to improve, on an equitable basis, the health and social welfare status of the population of Liberia,” Assistant Minister Harris stated. “Sustained leadership, stakeholders’ commitment, resources and efforts are needed to achieve this through strengthened leadership and governance for traditional medicine practices in Liberia; increase mobilization of adequate domestic and external sustainable financial resources to support traditional medicine practices; improve human resource planning, develop  and manage traditional medicine practice in Liberia; ensure the establishment of traditional medicine infrastructure; and strengthen and develop research in the field of traditional medicine.”The Deputy Chief Medical Officer of Liberia, Assistant Minister Saye Dahn Baawo and Dr. Nyaquoi K. Kargbo, Registrar of the LMDC, in separate remarks, said the policy is aimed at reforming and integrating quality, accessible, equitable and sustainable traditional medicine in the healthcare service delivery system for all people in the country.Dr. Baawo said the government will continue to pledge its support to traditional medicines and the first phase of strategy will be the national data registry of all Liberian herbalists across the country.For his part, Dr. Kargbo said the LMDC is pleased to witness the attached/or an annexed unit of traditional medicine at all health centers for patients to choose their kind of treatment.The Director of Complementary Medicine, Dr. Edwin S. Quoibia, expressed his appreciation to organizations and individuals that provided assistance and support in planning, developing and finalizing the Policy. He especially thanked LMDC and their Resource Director, Dr. Moses G. Y. Pewu.“We would like to appeal to all of our partners for their continual cooperation and support to the five-year Policy,” Dr. Quoibia said.The Policy is intended to serve as a guide for Liberians, other partners and traditional medicine workers in implementing and furthering the needed reforms of traditional medicine in Liberia. The policy has been developed to integrate traditional medicine practices with the conventional Western medical practices within Liberia’s health system. It focuses attention on leadership and governance, financing, human resources research and development, including infrastructure and manufacturing.The policy will apply to all institutions, organizations, individuals and other stakeholders involved with traditional medicine in the country. The application of this policy extends but will not be limited to herbalists, homeopath, acupuncturists, ayurvedic, osteopath, therapeutic massagers, drugless therapists, bone setters, traditional midwives, chiropractic, steam bath and food supplements.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Tipoteh Wants NEC Commissioners Dismissed

first_imgLong time opposition politician, Dr. Togba-Nah Tipoteh, has called on President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf to dismiss, with immediate effect, all of the Commissioners of the National Elections Commission (NEC).Dr. Tipoteh, in a release said the Commissioners must be dismissed now, “because they operate unfairly.”He said there is great urgency for the NEC Commissioners’ dismissal, “because unfair elections often lead to violence.”Citing, reasons for the dismissal of the commissioners, Dr. Tipoteh said the NEC chair recently publicly gave undue promotion to a political party at the expense of other political parties; the presence of a foreigner as NEC Commissioner; foreigners as candidates in NEC elections; foreigners as voters in NEC elections: and the placement of the wrong surnames of candidates in NEC elections.Dr. Tipoteh insists that with the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) Peacekeepers all set to depart from Liberia by June 2016 and general and presidential elections scheduled to be held in 2017, NEC must be made a fair Commission before the 2017 elections.“After the Liberian civil crisis, the people of Liberia are united in one loud and clear voice: we want peace, no more war,” Dr. Tipoteh told President Sirleaf the release, concerning the NEC Commissioners.He is therefore urging civil society to present a short list of potential NEC Commissioners to the President so that she can appoint NEC Commissioners only from the civil society lst.“The President,” he said, “must not appoint NEC Commissioners from her own list, because that would result in having the NEC Commissioners becoming unfair, as they are now, doing what they think is pleasing to the President.”Dr. Tipoteh made the call over the weekend when some media personnel approached him on his reaction to the public praising of a political party by the NEC Chairperson, Cllr. Jerome Korkoya, while other NEC Commissioners remained silent and therefore supportive of the NEC Chairperson’s “illegal praise-singing.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Food safety addressed to eliminate contaminated, substandard edibles

first_img…Risk-Based Food Inspection Manual to be implementedIn order to produce food that is safe, nutritive, and of high quality, stakeholders involved in food safety regulations were on Wednesday featured in a workshop targeting how desired standards and guidelines can be achieved.The workshop, held at the Grand Coastal Hotel, was in partnership with the Public Health Ministry, the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) and other regulatory branches that address food safety.According to Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr Shamdeo Persaud, one item on the agenda included the Risk-Based Food Inspection Manual, which will be altered specifically for Guyana. This is in light of the recent passage of the Food Safety bill, which warrants the establishment of a Food Safety Authority.“This manual that they recommend to countries is to adopt for local use. Our recent developments under food safety, especially the imminent launch of the new Food Safety Authority, we thought we could bring all the stakeholders together who are involved in food safety procedures, regulations and so on. We will go through the manual. We have already done some work on it. During this workshop, we will have a final look at it and get a Guyana version of the manual that would then be used by the respective agencies in the implementation of risk-based inspection of food,” Persaud explained.He insisted that the main objective is to produce food items of an undeniably reputable standard for both local and international markets. It has been shown that dishes prepared in the household are safe and uncontaminated by bacteria or other impurities.“The objective here is to make foods available for both our local population and food products for export that are high-quality, wholesome, and safe. I can say on a greater part, most of the household foods are safe. The Ministry of Health, through the Food and Health Department and Environmental Health Unit, has been actively advising households about how to purchase, prepare, store and use food safely,” the CMO related.Generally, it is recommended that food be consumed within two hours of preparation and if stored, the temperature must be of a specific degree. Good personal hygiene is also mandatory during handling and it must be done in an environment that is free of pests and has adequate storage facilities.Presently, restaurants and roadside vendors are yet to meet some of the standards established. Nevertheless, the first objective is to have all food handlers issued with the relevant certificate to operate.Persaud stated, “At the level of the commercial food providers, most of them like restaurants, cook shops [and] even the roadside vending, there are some bit of regulation. The Food and Drug Department and the Environmental Health Unit, and the regional and municipal inspectors would go around and ensure that food handlers are first of all, certified. We’re not quite there yet with everyone. There is still some work to do”.All food handlers are required to ensure that their hair is secured, jewellery are removed, and they are dressed appropriately as part of personal hygiene requirements. Water used during preparation must also be free of any toxins, since some bacterium can survive intense heat and cold.The CMO specifically mentioned improper storage of meats, which is common in marketplaces and other trading stations. In most cases, animals are slaughtered and hung for many hours instead of being stored on ice. Consumers also opt to buy fish that is stored at room temperature since some amount of ‘freshness’ is guaranteed. Contrary to this, Persaud insisted that seafood stored in a colder temperature is safer to use.Over the past months, the Government Analyst Food and Drug Department (GAFDD) has visited a few restaurants, where appalling sanitary conditions were unearthed. While some establishments were forced to close, others were given a deadline to mend the issues highlighted.Chief Medical Officer Dr Shamdeo Persaud with officials from PAHO and stakeholders of the workshoplast_img read more

Pep Guardiola wants £29m starlet at Man City and is ready to fight Barcelona

first_img Leroy Sane Barcelona are set to enter a bidding war with Manchester City for Schalke star Leroy Sane.The midfield talent is regarded as one of the hottest prospects in European football, with the German club facing an uphill task to keep hold of him beyond the summer.According to Mundo Deportivo, Barca have scouted the 20-year-old on several occasions this season and are determined to beat their former manager, Pep Guardiola, to the player’s signature.Having watched Sane closely during his time in Germany, Guardiola is keen to bring the playmaker to the Etihad when he takes charge of City next season as he bids to revamp the current squad.Sane is under contract with Schalke until 2019 but has a release clause of £29m.City were favourites to land Sane but now Barca are hot on their tails after sending their technical secretary, Robert Fernandez, to Germany last week to see the player in action against Mainz. 1last_img read more

(PHOTO/Proline)Uganda Premier LeagueProline FC 2-1 Express FCStarTimes Stadium, LugogoTuesday, 01-10-2019Proline FC inflicted a fourth loss of the season onto Express thanks to a 2-1 come-back victory on Tuesday afternoon.Noordin Bunjo and Mustapha Kizza struck for the visitors in identical fashion, netting via free-kicks.Express had earlier taken the lead through captain Disan Ggaliwango.The left-back lashed onto a long ball before slotting past Hassan Matovu in the Proline goal inside the opening 20 minutes of the game.However, the home side reacted immediately as Bunjo sent a free-kick into the back of the net.Alfred Leku could have added a second before half time but the former Red Eagles succumbed to pressure from custodian Tony Kyamera.Edrisa Lubega also failed to beat Kyamera from a promising position but Mujuzi was on hand to save the day.The defender blasted a free-kick into the back of the net with 7 minutes to play to complete a deserved comeback for the hosts.It was a disappointing game for Express who have now lost four of their first 6 games of the season.However, they had chances to at least take a point home but could not capitalize.With the game still goalless, Frank Ssenyondo lashed onto a long ball but his effort was thwarted by the on-rushing Matovu.In the second half, Frank Kalanda header over while unmarked in the Proline 6-yard box.For Proline, this is their. Second victory of the season, having earlier defeated Onduparaka 1-0 on match-day three.Proline’s next assignment will see them hosting Busoga United on Saturday while Express will have entertained Police FC at Wankulukuku the day before.Proline FC XIHassan Matovu (GK), Saka Mpiima, Mustafa Mujuzi, Bunjo Noordin, Yusuf Mukisa, Hakim Kiwanuka, Mahad Kakooza, Diego Hamis Kizza, Edirisa Lubega, Ibrahim WamanahExpress FC XITony Kyamera (GK), Yiga Muhammad, Cyrus Kibande, Martin Kizza, Andrew Kiwanuka, Daniel Shabena, Lawrence Kigonya, Hamdan Nsubuga, Disan Galiwango, Frank Kalanda, Frank SsenyondoThe other games played on Tuesday-Bul FC 2-0 Maroons -Kyetume 0-1 Police FC -Bright stars 0-0 URA FCWednesday’s fixtures-Tooro United vs KCCA FC -Onduparaka vs Wakiso GiantsComments Tags: Bunjo NoordinDiego Hamis KizzaDisan GgaliwangoEdirisa LubegaexpressExpress FCHakim KiwanukaHockey Grounds in LugogoIbrahim WamanahMahad Kakoozamujibu kasuleMustafa Mujuziproline fcSaka MpiimaStarTimes StadiumTony KyameratopYusuf Mukisalast_img read more

Half-time: Chelsea 1 Steaua 0

first_imgChelsea took an early lead in their final Champions League group match courtesy of Daniel Georgievski’s 10th-minute own goal.Willian’s right-wing corner was headed on by Oscar and with Demba Ba looking to apply the finishing touch, an under-pressure Georgievski appeared to knock the ball in, although Ba may be credited with the goal.Already through to the knockout stage and knowing a victory would guarantee they progress as Group E winners, the Blues had made a strong start.David Luiz miscued after being found unmarked by Willian’s corner and Oscar fired wide from the edge of the penalty area before the opener.Luiz, who has been nursing a knee problem, was recalled to the side along with Ashley Cole – the duo’s first appearance since last month’s defeat at Newcastle.Oscar, lively in the opening 20 minutes, also returned after shaking off an ankle knock.Steaua Bucharest should have equalised when Gabriel Iancu sneaked in behind John Terry and had only keeper Mark Schwarzer to beat but dragged his shot horribly wide.But Chelsea have been dominant and would have doubled their advantage had keeper Ciprian Tatarusanu not produced a reflex save to tip over Branislav Ivanovic’s close-range header from Eden Hazard’s cross.Chelsea: Schwarzer; Ivanovic, Luiz, Terry, Cole; Mikel, Lampard; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Ba.Subs: Cech, Cahill, Ramires, De Bruyne, Mata, Schurrle, Torres.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
