ghJohn Dumelo is one of leading movie Icons, John Dumelo, has slammed the producers and manufacturers of Ghanaian “Porn” movies saying, they should be blamed for the increasing rate of pornography in the Ghanaian movie industry. But another award winning Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson says she sees nothing wrong with the nudity in Ghanaian movies.

She is of the view that Ghanaians patronize worst pornographic movies of foreign origin than what people call Ghanaian pornography John Dumelo says it is the responsibility of movie makers to ensure that any acts and scenes that contain nudity and obscurity are edited out of the movies before they are released for public viewing. There have been concerns about the recent influx of nude movies on the Ghanaian markets with the actors and producers taking a chunk of the blame. They have been accused of promoting nudity in the Ghanaian movies whiles others have described the practice as an affront to Ghana’s rich cultural heritage. Speaking to Adom News, John Dumelo stated that though actors and actresses have contributed to the promotion of nudity in Ghanaian movies, the onus lies on the movie makers who are to ensure that extreme nude scenes are edited before the movies are brought to the market. He conceded to the fact that the nudity in Ghanaian movies is becoming too much and called for an immediate end to it. He intimidated there have been occasions that he has appealed to producers to edit some nude scenes he played which the producers agreed, only for him to see the unedited versions being sold on the market. He tells Adom News that he sometimes feel bad when he sees some of the extreme nude scenes he featured in but added that, once the movie is out nothing can be done about it. The Ghanaian superstar has advocated the need for more collaboration between them and other African countries, apart from the usual collaboration with their Nigerian counterparts to strengthen the movie industry in Africa.

Expert Says UAE is a Leading Healthcare Destination in the Region
With UAE’s world-class healthcare infrastructure, expertise, and services, Emirates Hospital Jumeirah is well-positioned to match the highest international standards.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 8 April 2018, (AETOSWire): Speaking on World Health Day, Dr Yehia El Gabbani, Hospital Director of Emirates Hospital-Jumeirah, said the UAE healthcare market’s innovative progress make it the leading healthcare destination in the MENA region. The country has seen a surge in new specialised services and treatments for residents and innovative products such as surgical robots, augmented reality systems, and artificial intelligence.

The UAE healthcare market, which is projected to reach $19.5 billion (Dh71.56 billion) by 2020, is a leading healthcare destination in the GCC region. The UAE is also world’s fastest growing medical tourism hub, with total health expenditure allocation jumping from the current $23 billion to $28 billion by 2021. With UAE’s world-class healthcare infrastructure, expertise, and services, Emirates Hospital Jumeirah is well-positioned to match the highest international standards.
“Development of UAE’s healthcare sector has taken centre stage among GCC countries, as they witness an era of demographic transition with a growing population. In order to ease the growing pressure on the healthcare system, the GCC governments are encouraging private sector participation to build exceptional hospitals and clinics, upgrade existing infrastructure, and match the quality of services offered in leading countries,” said Dr Yehia.
Private sector involvement is becoming imperative to meet the rising demand for healthcare as well as to reduce the burden of costs on the government finances. With growing health awareness among the residents along with the GCC governments’ effort to improve health indicators is leading to a shift to preventive care. Focus on the prevention of diseases will not only improve the public health profile but can also help reduce healthcare expenditure and enhance the quality of care.
