The Multimedia Group has presented copies of Seth Kwame Boateng's latest documentary 'Next to Die' to the First lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo and wife of the Vice president Samira Bawumia.

The presentation was led by Chief Operating Officer of the television section of the Group, Santokh Singh. He was accompanied by the host of the AM Show, Mamavi Owusu Aboagye and Seth Kwame Boateng.

 

The First Lady promised to contribute to finding a solution to the needless deaths at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) following the JOYNEWS Special Assignment documentary 'Next to die'.

Rebecca Akufo-Addo who registered her discontent with the current situation said she would see how best she could intervene and halt these needless deaths. 

Seth Kwame Boateng's documentary highlighted maternal and child deaths as a result of lack of space and logistics at the hospital.  

Doctors and other stakeholders have called for the speedy completion of an abandoned 1000 bed capacity maternal block for the hospital.

On the average, about 100 women are dying on delivery beds at the KATH in Kumasi annually, while about four babies die each day.

Officials say the situation has reached a crisis level as women in labour are forced to join long queues.
