Schistosomiasis in Ghana: A Mini-review

Africa: History and Culture, 2018, 3(1): 5-11.
DOI: 10.13187/ahc.2018.1.5CrossRef

Schistosomiasis is one of the neglected tropical diseases with infections often asymptomatic and, in severe cases giving rise to largely chronic and incapacitating manifestations. Ghana, like many tropical regions is endemic to schistosomiasis. This paper seeks to give a brief global picture of this parasitic disease and some historical events that have so far occurred in Ghana. Though in recent years, prevalence of schistosomiasis recorded in some parts of the country has decreased, it still remains a disease of major public health concern. This mini-review has implications for disease control, policy and research.

Ghana’s Kangaroo Mother Care: A Historical Review on Eastern Regional Hospital KMC Excellence Centre

Africa: History and Culture, 2018, 3(1): 12-17.
DOI: 10.13187/ahc.2018.1.12CrossRef

Ghana, which is part of sub-Saharan Africa is also noted for preterm and low-birthweight births. Following the inception of Kangaroo Mother Care in Colombia, this method has gained the approval of the World Health Organization as a standard approach for the care of preterm and low-birthweight infants. Though Ghana adopted this method in 2007, the standard Colombian approach was comprehensively introduced in Ghana after the 2015 training of 3 health professionals from the Eastern Regional Hospital. Consequently, the Eastern Regional Hospital has championed this care and trained several health workers and students. The centre has participated in several clinical and scientific meetings to share their findings.

Economic Reintegration: A Look at African Returnees

Africa: History and Culture, 2018, 3(1): 18-24.
DOI: 10.13187/ahc.2018.1.18CrossRef

Young people from Africa, like many developing places in the world, often leave their countries in search of better opportunities. Once they are involuntary or forced to return home, the problem of economic reintegration seems to reemerge. The purpose of our paper is to evaluate the economic reintegration of African deportees into their respective countries of origin. In this paper, we seek to enhance knowledge about the progress of the economic reintegration of forced-returnees and also add to the paucity of research on evaluations of reintegration.

Why Evidence is Not Always Used in Nursing Practice and Education in Africa: The Place of Organisational Culture

Africa: History and Culture, 2018, 3(1): 25-27.
DOI: 10.13187/ahc.2018.1.25CrossRef

Globally, Evidence-Based Practice is most preferable for care of patients and training of nurses. Nonetheless, organisational culture in most developing African countries may serve as an impediment to its success. This paper seeks to explore some organisational cultural factors that can impact on the use of evidence in Africa among nurses. As Africa seeks to raise the quality of nursing practice and education, much has to be invested into the organisational culture frame of the healthcare environment.

Is Internet a Family Divide Tool in Africa?

Africa: History and Culture, 2018, 3(1): 28-30.
DOI: 10.13187/ahc.2018.1.28CrossRef

Historically, African societies are communal and value family bonds. Thus, anything that seems to impair the function of communal bonding is traditionally classified as a ‘taboo’ or ‘nuisance.’ With the inception of technological means of communication like social media, little is known about how these technologies affect the family bond in Africa. This paper seeks to briefly identify possible gaps in Africa vis-à-vis the concept of technological means of communication and how they have affected existing human communication and psychosocial health. This paper has implications for research and psychosocial health of Africans.
