COVID-19 Guidelines for UG students

Starting January 4, 2021 - Ending January 4, 2022

 

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which was discovered in China in December 2019. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment.  Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

This document is a guideline developed by the University Health Services COVID-19 Response Team to inform UG students on:

  1. Preventive measures to prevent spread of COVID-19
  2. How and when to get tested, and get results
  3. How positive cases are managed
  4. Additional support available for all UG students.

Due to the fact that a lot of information is being generated to understand how best to manage this pandemic globally, these guidelines will be updated according to national and global trends.

Title: Forgiveness: Benefits and Alleged Harms

Time: 2:00pm GMT

Date: Friday, 27th November 2020

 

Abstract

Studies have found that the act of forgiveness can reap huge benefits not only for personal health and wellbeing, but also, for public health and social relationships. However, it is alleged that at certain times, particularly in abusive relationships and other situations of continuous offenses, forgiveness can be harmful, emboldening perpetrators. This presentation will highlight the benefits of forgiveness, clarifying what it is and what it is not – other ways of coping with offenses that may include elements of, yet distinct from the act of complete forgiveness. Implications for forgiveness research in Ghana and for personalised and population-wide forgiveness education and training are highlighted, with focus on the REACH forgiveness model as an evidence-based self-help training model for engendering forgiveness.

Biography

Judith Osae-Larbi is a Health Psychologist and Research Fellow at the West African Genetic Medicine Centre (WAGMC), University of Ghana. Her areas of work focus on the role of psychological processes, including forgiveness, on patient experiences and health outcomes. She is also the Founding Executive Director of Psychological Relief for Women International (PReWI) – a non-profit organisation focused on bringing psychological relief to women in distress including connecting women in distress to other mental health resources.

Customarily, the 2020 Edition of the Remembrance Day Service and Prayers would have been physically observed with bereaved families on Sunday 1st November with a Christian Service and on Friday 6th November 2020 with Moslem Prayers. Regrettably, the COVID-19 pandemic has made physical observation of the Remembrance Day a public safety hazard.

Nevertheless, I respectfully urge all of us, to commemorate the 2020 Remembrance Day with solemn thoughts and prayers for our departed members.

The University grieves and commiserates with the families of all those we have painfully lost, even as we console ourselves that the Good Lord will keep and reward their souls for the services rendered to society and mankind.

We pray that the Good Lord comforts and strengthens us all with the assurance from Psalm 34:18 that:

“The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit”.

We will forever cherish the memories of our departed ones.

MAY THEIR SOULS FIND PEACE IN THE LORD

Title: The evolving role of finance in renewable electricity systems in Senegal Registration link - https://uni-freiburg.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcudO6sqDwpHd3s7ZaM9TCUIT...

Time: 11 am GMT

Date: Thursday 29th October 2020

 

Abstract

According to the IEA, in 2018 75 per cent of Senegal’s electricity was generated from diesel generators. Until recently, the country suffered from regular and prolonged electricity blackouts and load-shedding, accompanied by rising electricity tariffs. However, electricity security and access have started to improve since 2012 following the government’s commitment to achieve 100 per cent electrification and overhaul the generation mix, with the promotion of renewable energy as a core objective. In the last decade, significant regulatory changes have been introduced to allow for the introduction of privately generated electricity. Consequently, significant developments have been made at various scales, including the development of the 158 MW Parc Eolien Taiba N’Diaye wind farm and various solar PV plants at the utility-scale; the development of numerous solar PV mini-grids; and the rapid development of off-grid and micro-grid systems across the country.

Thus far, however, limited critical thinking has been dedicated to how these emerging systems of renewable electricity systems are being financed and owned. With this in mind, I ask the following questions:

· What are the evolving configurations and processes of finance and investment in different scales of renewable electricity generation in Senegal?

· Through which regulatory mechanisms have they been facilitated?

· How are they interacting with national and local territorial realities?

Analytically the research builds on emerging concepts of ‘geographies of electricity capital’ (Luke and Huber 2020) in order to understand evolving interactions between finance, technologies and infrastructure and the role of the state and other public and private actors in setting the terms for new configurations of electricity generation, transmission and distribution.

Biography

Lucy Baker is a senior research fellow in the Science Policy Research Unit, University of Sussex. She is a human geographer with research expertise in the political economy of energy transitions; renewable energy policy, finance and technology development; and low-carbon development in the global South. She has a country specialism on South Africa. Lucy is convenor on the master’s module: “Energy and Development”. She is also associate editor of the journal Geoforum.

Prior to joining academia in 2008, Lucy worked for over a decade with environment, development and human rights non-governmental organisations, including Oxfam, Amnesty International and Bretton Woods Project, as a policy officer, campaigner and fund-raiser.

Please note that the seminar will be recorded.

Webinar on results of WACCBIP COVID-19 seroprevalence studies in parts of southern Ghana

Starting October 27, 2020 - Ending October 27, 2021

Members of the University community are hereby invited to a webinar being organized by the West African Centre for Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens (WACCBIP), to share results of seroprevalence studies that were conducted by scientists from WACCBIP and the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research at the University of Ghana, to assess the levels of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 in the Greater Accra Region and Kasoa, a large town in the Central Region of Ghana.  

The scientists successfully screened 1305 individuals at three (3) major markets/lorry stations, two (2) major shopping malls, three (3) hospitals and two (2) research institutions involved in COVID-19 work. Participants were screened with a lateral flow type Rapid Diagnostic Test that simultaneously detects IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2. The screening was done from July to September 2020 and the key findings from the investigations are as follows: 

 

1. Overall, 19% of participants (252 out of 1305) tested positive for IgM or IgG or both. 

2. The exposure rate was significantly higher among individuals tested at Markets/Lorry stations (26.9%) compared to those at Shopping Malls (9.4%). 

3. There was no significant difference in exposure rates in Females (19.9%) compared to Males (18.5%). 

4. The 41-60-year age group had the highest exposure rate (27.2%). 

5. By levels of education, individuals with only Basic or no education (26.2%) had a significantly higher exposure rate compared to those with Tertiary level education (13.1%). 

6. Furthermore, the exposure rate was significantly higher in individuals in the Informal employment sector (24.0%) compared to those in the Formal sector (15.0%). 

 

The scientists will discuss the results in detail and place in context what the results mean for Ghana's fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Date: Wednesday, October 28, 2020 

Time: 12:00 p.m. (GMT)

Scholarship Opportunities for Eight (8) PhD Students

Starting September 23, 2020 - Ending September 23, 2021

Scholarship Opportunities for Eight (8) PhD Students

The Life Course Transitions and Trajectories of Persons with Disabilities in West African Societies (LICOT-WASO) project, funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) through the Research Partner Group for Alumni, seeks to understand the life courses of persons with disabilities in West African societies particularly Ghana. This is in line with the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (UNCPRD) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The University of Siegen / Centre for Planning and Evaluation of Social Services (ZPE), in cooperation with the Department of Social Work and the Centre for Gender Studies and Advocacy (CEGENSA), University of Ghana, Legon, seek qualified candidates from relevant academic units within the College of Humanities (COH), University of Ghana, to apply for PhD research scholarships.

The LICOT-WASO project is a scientific research to examine the social structures that exist in Ghana and other West African countries and their impact on the life courses of people with disabilities. It seeks to focus on the situation with persons with disabilities in West Africa particularly Ghana both in and between the following life phases- early childhood, adolescence, young adulthood and old age. Of interest is how social norms are constructed and institutionalized in the life course patterns for persons with disabilities and the dynamics of change in how social modernization processes have influenced the construction of life courses. The interplay between informal structures (such as the family, neighbourhood) with formal structures (i.e. government and charity organizations), and how these influence the life courses of persons with disabilities is relevant. Accordingly, the research is related to the following dimensions:

· transitions along life courses between early childhood, adolescence, young adulthood and old age;

· transitions in connection with different social functional systems (e.g. social protection- formal and informal structures, health, education, labour etc.);

· gender-related perspectives on transitions;

· ethnic perspectives on transitions.

We invite interested PhD students in Year Two who have completed their course work to submit a three-page research proposal dedicated to addressing one or more of the following research objectives:

· The position of persons with disabilities within families, communities and societies in West Africa particularly Ghana;

· Typical life course patterns and their subjective effects on persons with disabilities in West Africa particularly Ghana;

· The impact of the paradigm shift towards a human rights-based understanding of disability (e.g. in relation to work, education, family roles and opportunities, defining social norms and beliefs);

· The influence of social references and local life contexts on the design of transition

processes in the life courses of persons with disabilities;

· Insights into key challenges and interactions that persons with disabilities face in transition processes as well as individual development and application of coping strategies to address these challenges;

· Insights into key actors in the successful design of transition phases (e.g. extended family structures, traditional authorities, neighbourhoods, self-help groups, civil society and religious groups, local administrations);

· Knowledge about formal and informal support structures in different phases of life and in transition processes;

· Evidence-based development of inclusive and life-stage responsive social protection and service structures.

 

 

Requirements:

1. Applicants should have completed Year One in any relevant unit of the humanities (Arts and Social Sciences), University of Ghana.
