Dr. Raphael Nyarkotey Obu, a prostate cancer researcher, policy marker and a registered

Naturopathic doctor who has specialized in prostate cancer was invited to deliver expert talk on

prostate cancer at the IYF conference organized recently to over 500 participants from different

countries in Africa.

Dr. Obu
The conference organized by Good News Mission places emphasis on health issues as most

participants have not heard about prostate cancer in their various countries.

According to some of the participants they have heard about breast cancer, malaria, HIV and

Hepatitis B but not prostate cancer, this is attributed to low awareness of the diseases in their

various countries.

According to Dr. Nyarkotey, Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in the black

communities, hence there is the need to raise awareness on the disease and hope the men?s health

foundation Ghana work will extend to other Africa countries. He was accompanied by Dzifa

Bedi Yvonne, who is a prostate cancer ambassador to the men?s charity.

The charity organization has started this program as part of its projects to reduce the high

mortality rates in the country. The men?s charity believes that Ghanaian men deserve better

treatment for prostate cancer.

The IYF is an NGO organization based on the foundation of Christian values; structured to

promote good values and raise the standards of the youth towards future development and

success.
