GNAT Cancer fund: Types of cancers and their cost of treatment-Be informed
The Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT) has outlined the type of cancers that are cured at the Sweden Ghana Medical Centre (SGMC) and the cost involved.
This comes in reaction to an article written by a particular group of GNAT members which gained wild reactions by netizens suggesting that the GNAT cancer fund should be transformed into a teachers’ health fund.
According to the GNAT leadership, the mutual fund contribution which currently stands at GHS2 per month is too small to cater for the cancer treatment hence the need for the increment to GHS5.
The union has also released the dues collected from its members and the bills received within a given period.
Below is a table depicting the funds accrued for the cancer fund, the bills from the SGMC, and the variance for the period September to December 2021.
