The Ghanaian Times is alarmed at the sheer number of children suffering from heart diseases in the country and the financial challenge that comes with it. It says that about seven thousand children suffer congenital heart diseases every year in Ghana, hence the need to provide cure for the ailment. The Times therefore backs calls by the head of cardiothoracic surgery at the University of Allied Sciences, Prof. Frank Edwin for political priority to be placed on cardiovascular diseases and appeals to government to provide more infrastructure and funding for the cardiac care in the country for patients especially children to benefit from it.
