Key Meetings and Activities
 
KNUST Foundation

Following an appeal and invitation made to the PSGH by the Vice-Chancellor of KNUST, Prof. William Otoo Ellis to support the KNUST Foundation, the Governing Board approved to support the KNUST FOUNDATION. The donation which was from the PSGH Advocacy Fund was symbolically presented in the form of a dummy check at the launch of the KNUST Foundation at City Escape Hotel on Saturday, 21st May, 2016.

KNUST has supported the PSGH over the years by generously providing access to the university facilities for our AGMs in Kumasi and also through the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences (FPPS), provided an office for the PSGH Secretariat in Kumasi. Supporting the  Foundation was to demonstrate our appreciation for the support  KNUST has provided over the years to PSGH. It is also to be recognized as a step towards fortifying this long partnership that has existed between pharmacists and the university.


MedRx

With encouragement and endorsement from the PSGH, Medrx, a start-up technological company founded by Pharm. Hayford N. Brafo (PA 3434) and Yannick Kabu Bosomprah (software engineer) and ably supported by Pharmacist Intern, Victoria Tekyiwaah Amofah Acheampong won the final MTN Entrepreneurship Challenge which took place at the MTN Solutions Space in Cape Town, South Africa. The competition started with over 700 entries from 26 countries across the continent.

The PSGH will continue to support them to improve upon their innovation in the years ahead to achieve more laurels. The PSGH and Medrx are in the process of launching a campaign that aims to raise awareness of the valuable roles pharmacists play in healthcare delivery.

The PSGH will continue to encourage and support young and upcoming pharmacists who have laudable initiatives and ideas to achieve their maximum potential.


Visit to WHO

The President and members of the Governmental and Non-governmental Relations Directorate paid a courtesy call on the WHO Country Representative, Dr. Owen Laws Kaluwa. The meeting explored various forms of collaboration between the WHO and the PSGH in health promotion and awareness creation.


This Month

The PSGH would continue its parallel and independent monitoring of the implementation of the Pharmacy Council policy on supervision of pharmacies.

The PSGH Constitutional Review Committee would round up its review and plan an engagement with various Regional Branches.

Invitation

Collèagues, as always say, I welcome your thoughts, questions and inputs on these conversations. Send us your concerns and ideas through our website (www.psgh.org), Facebook platform (PSGH Lounge) or email me through: president@psgh.org. Other SEC and GB members are also willing and ready to welcome your thoughts. I will respectfully plead that you reduce these thoughts into writing to enable us get an actual sense of your inputs and not just a verbal/hearsay suggestions. This is an express repetition from one of my previous updates meant to highlight how valuable your suggestions mean to me and my team members.


Conclusion

I remain committed and open to working with all of us towards realizing our dreams. At the AGM, we will have more time to engage on our plans, promises and progress on creating the new outlook for Pharmacy.

We remain committed to our vision: To become and remain the most trusted friends of the human race. 

Thank you,
