penThe Anidaso Parkinson’s Disease Foundation Ghana wants the government to put Parkinson’s disease medications on the National Health Insurance Scheme.

Director, Dr. Vida Obese, believes it will relieve the burden off the elderly who are already burdened with other diseases.

She was speaking at a forum to commemorate World’s Parkinson’s Day.

Dr. Obese noted that Ghana’s growing aging population requires attention to prevent ailments such as Parkinson’s disease.
