This is because the pattern of the disease burden is gradually moving from a largely communicable to predominantly non-communicable disease system.

“With increasing life expectancy, the challenges of degenerative diseases are becoming more prominent and this calls for specialized nurses and midwives who will not only manage such diseases but also help transform societal behaviour to adopt healthier lifestyles,” the Minister said.

A statement issued by Rector of Ghana College of Nurses and Midwives (GCNM), Dr Florence Naab, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, over the weekend, quoted the Health Minister as having made the remarks at the inaugural, induction and matriculation ceremony of the College in Accra.
