Anglogold Ashanti trains health workers in Obuasi on stress management and substance abuse

Over 300 health workers in the Obuasi East and the Obuasi Municipality have so far benefited from the various modules of training organised by AngloGold Ashanti and Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).

Speaking at a close-out session for some health personnel who were trained in stress management and substance abuse, the Senior Manager of Sustainability AngloGold Ashanti Emmanuel Baidoo said the training formed part of series of health intervention programs headlining AGA’s 10-year Socio-Economic Development Plan.

He said since last year, AGA and GIZ have trained Health workers in the two districts in Cervical cancer, baby resuscitation, stress management maternal and child health and substance abuse.

The training workshop he believed will help update the knowledge base of the health workers and further boost the health care delivery system in Obuasi. ” We as a company remain proud knowing very well the training programs will achieve the needed impact in our health sector”.
