Good health is one of the underpinning determinants of good academic performance. However, a lot of students spend substantial part of their academic hours in health facilities seeking for medical attention; illnesses which could have been prevented.
Most of the diseases students report with are usually hygiene related. Talk of food poisoning, urinary tract infections, skin infections and even malaria. This suggests that, with the right health measures in place, most students will be able to live a disease-free life on campus.
With years of experience as a school health nurse, having work with the University of Ghana Students Clinic, Assandoh throws more light on the relevant practices needed to stay safe from diseases whiles pursuing academic excellence on campus.
