Students of the College of Community Health Nursing, Winneba, advised to adopt good sanitary practices to protect their health and the environment
First year students of the College of Community Health Nursing, Winneba, have been advised to adopt good sanitary practices to protect their health and the environment. The advise was given at the College by the Director of Shape Attitude Ghana, Wonderful Baisie Ghartey, at one of the orientation sessions for “freshers” on 5 October 2017.
Mr Ghartey said the challenges with sanitation in the country are largely due to negative attitudes and practices and noted that attitudes are acquired and highly infectious. Therefore, if the students adopt positive attitudes and practices, it will have significant impact on the community, including their College. Mr Ghartey challenged the students’ leadership to play a pivotal role in maintaining good sanitary conditions around the college, their hostels and where they do their home visits.
In September 2017, Mr Ghartey gave a similar talk to first year students of the University of Education, Winneba.
