The forum was organised by HFFG, and other stakeholders, Youth Development, Research and Innovation Centre (YOUDRIC) and the Institute for Social Research and Development (ISRAD), to examine their work in the prevention of the outbreak of the cholera and ebola disease last year.

The three non-governmental organisations (NGOs) which collaborated as a unit to roll-out intervention programmes with the support of UKAID, used the platform to critically examine issues arising out of their preventive measures as they wind up activities of the project.

Madam Senoo said the nine-months intervention with the aid of UKAID was a success as they sought to working with already existing structures in the communities.

She said the three NGOs had worked with Ghana Education Service (GES), Ghana Health Services (GHS), traditional leaders and known volunteers in the communities for the Ebola and the cholera message to get down very well with the people.

Madam Senoo said, though the support had officially ended, the three NGOs had put plans in place to ensure that intervention structures were well sustained to mitigate the outbreak of any of the diseases in the future.
