*Passion for Difference to hold a seminar to intensify education on COVID-19 vaccination in Norway as the society re-opens*
Passion For Difference is set to hold a seminar to intensify education on the effects of COVID-19, vaccination, and how people can begin to take their lives back as society eases on restrictive measures. The branch of the organization in Bergen- Norway is focused on multicultural parenting and childcare.
The event is slated for Friday 11th March 2022, 16:15-19:00 at the Bergen Kultursenter (Dance Hall 4th Floor).
The acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Passion for Difference (PFD), Naana Okyerewaa Dwamena said the aim of the event seeks to educate the general public and participants in Bergen on the health benefits of COVID-19 vaccination in line with the National Infection Control Measures to protect citizens from dangers associated with the virus.
A medical expert, Dr. Elmer Edward and Valgjerd Tvedt Levisen as a resource person, will lead the discussions to educate participants on the status of infections in Norway and the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccination. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions, add comments from their own experiences and use the opportunity to learn more about the current situation of the pandemic.
According to reports, statistics from the health institutions indicate that a large proportion of the sickest coronary patients who are admitted in the hospitals are those who are not vaccinated.
Due to these developments, Helse Bergen has collaborated with the State Administrator, the Directorate of Integration and Diversity (IMDi), the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO), the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO), the Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) to intensify education on vaccination.
In line with this, a comprehensive plan has been developed and compiled information to encourage people to get vaccinated against the coronavirus in different languages.
The seminar is expected to throw more light on the issues at hand as a way of educating the public. This program is being organized in collaboration with the Ghana Union Vestland, Vestland Innvandrerråd, and supported by Batteriet Bergen Vest.
