The Ghanaian Times says everyone needs to be concerned with the country’s erratic rainfall. It wonders how long people have to look on as floods annually waste lives and property. The paper says the drains need to be fixed, whiles systems to harvest rainwater for use later during the period of lack of rainfall also need to be put in place. The Times commends the Meteorological Agency for playing its role by way of putting out climate and environmentally important information for the action of relevant agencies, including assemblies and NADMO. The paper calls on NADMO to be proactive this time rather than wait for the avoidable to happen before giving out mats, plastic buckets and other such items to aid disaster victims.

 

The Daily Graphic is worried about the poor control of hypertension in the country. It says hypertension is among the leading causes of admission and deaths in the country. The paper says failure to control hypertension is thought to be a driving factor for its persistence, leading to misconceptions and poor knowledge of the disease in Ghana even among patients living with the condition. It is for this reason that the Graphic believes the combination of enabling factors of high prevalence, low awareness and poor control of hypertension calls for an urgent response in line with Ghana’s strategies to prioritize cardiovascular health through investments in risk education, dietary and lifestyle behaviours.
