As part of its regular exercise of creating awareness on basic healthcare needs for women and children, The Health Farm (THF) Ghana Foundation team pitched camp at the Saint Joseph Anglican Junior High School in Prampram, to educate pupils on the dangers of teenage pregnancy and the need to maintain a healthy reproductive life.

The students, with an average age of 14, were advised on the ills of engaging in unprotected sex, which comes with its own consequences such as contracting Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD’s), which include HIV and AIDS, gonorrhoea, syphilis and a host of others, not forgetting the negative impact it can have on their education, and their life as a whole. This is also a way to compliment government effort to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal three (3) “Good Health and Well-Being”.

Be Responsible Citizens

Laying the facts bare for the pupils, the Project Coordinator of the foundation, Mr. William Idan Aggrey, admonished the students to dedicate their time and efforts to their books, if they plan on becoming good and responsible citizens in the very near future, “this is the time for you to stick to your books, don’t allow boys to entice you with gifts and fake promises”, he said.

He further entreated them to be cautious of the kind of company they keep as friends, and learn to exercise self-control, especially since they are adolescents and may have the edge to engage in sexual activities.

Rev. Fr. Samuel Sackitey, headmaster of the school, was delighted about the visit and said, “this gesture will go a long way to help our students. At least it won’t be the same faces telling them the same thing over and over again”. He then that revealed some students have fallen prey to the advances of some irresponsible boys in the community for some time now, and asked that the visit be repeated.

The demographic and health survey of 2014 in Ghana indicates that 14% of adolescent women aged 15 – 19 are mothers or pregnant with their first child, with the Upper East, Volta Region, Brong Ahafo, Central and Eastern Regions having the highest rates of 14% and above.
