Dettol Ghana manufactured by Reckitt, has been endorsed by the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) as the hygiene product of choice to promote good hygiene for expectant, nursing mothers and Ghanaians at large.
The two organisations signed a memorandum of understanding to formalize the partnership.
The GRNMA is a professional association for all categories of Nurses and Midwives in Ghana with a mission to develop the nurse professionally to cope with contemporary challenges of the profession towards the promotion of the health of their clientele and their socio-economic status.
Speaking on behalf of Dettol at the signing ceremony, Country Sales Manager Reckitt, Mr Henry Ankrah, stated that “Dettol is one of the most trusted brands in the world backed by research and innovation. It is safe, easy to use and an effective hygiene product that kills up to 100 illness-causing germs. Dettol’s partnership with GRNMA aligns with the brand’s purpose to protect life, reduce the burden of illness, and drive behaviour change to create lasting hygiene habits.
He added that the partnership aims to further encourage good hygiene practices in hospitals, communities and the public through various activities. It will also help to create and release public awareness messages, and campaigns on public health and personal hygiene to promote awareness of health and hygiene matters among the public.
President of GRNMA, Mrs Perpetual Ofori Ampofo said Dettol is mostly used in the clinical areas of every hospital hence the partnership, which will be on an array of Dettol products to promote good hygiene.
Mr Ankrah further commended the nurses and midwives for their roles, which ensured safe child delivery and provided extensive healthcare for Ghanaians.”
