Optimum health is a key determinant of human development. The increasing incidence of non-communicable disease like hypertension and diabetes go hand in hand with a growing incidence of Psychological Disorders, Substance and Alcohol Abuse and Sleep disorders in Ghana.
These conditions have the tendency to significantly deform our human resource capacity and need to be treated with a clear emphasis on respect for the client. Respect for the client plus providing the right atmosphere for treatment significantly reduces the stigma associated with these illness. The public hospital cannot cope with the rising incidence of these conditions and the private sector needs to intervene. The public hospitals are also affected by poor public perception and a lack of respect for the client.
