AMEHG broadcasts the plea of children suffering from hydrocephalus

The Association of Mothers of Children with Hydrocephalus in Guinea (AMEHG) has put together its two first television spots to be aired in Guinean national TV. These touching public service announcements, featuring real-life affected and recovering hydrocephalus patients, shine a light on the suffering of the children and their families, showcasing some of the misconceptions about the condition and urging parents to contact AFG/AMEHG to receive support and immediate medical treatment.

These television spots are the latest in a series of efforts by AFG and AMEHG to spread the word about hydrocephalus which also include scientific conferences to educate medical professionals to test for the disease and, once diagnosed, refer the victims for treatment. Many children suffering from the alarming symptoms of this disease are severely neglected, due to misinformation or lack of resources. We want to stop hydrocephalus from killing any more Guinean children.
