Jammeh’s infertility treatment: ‘Unsurpassed’ 96 confirmed pregnant

Monday, August 4, 2008
Dr Tamsir Mbowe, the director general of the Presidential Medical Programme and director of Health and Medical Services, has described the efficacy of President Alhaji Dr Yahya Jammeh’s infertility treatment as “unsurpassed”.

Dr Mbowe, a renowned gyneacologist, said this has been evidently manifested by the results of patients who have undergone the treatment.

“So far, based on HCG and Abdominal Ultra Sound reports, 96 patients have been confirmed pregnant. Seven out of the 96 patients are from Europe and other African countries,” said Dr Mbowe.

DG Dr Mbowe observed that many more patients who conceived as a result of President Jammeh’s infertility treatment might not want to come out and announce their status, due to traditional and cultural beliefs associated with pregnancy.

According to Dr Mbowe, those who have not yet conceived might either have reached menopause, developed gyneacological problems or have partners with medical complications.  

He then used the opportunity to announce the registration date for men with impotency or sexual complications. According to him, the registration process will take place at the new Serrekunda Hospital on Monday, from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

He also expressed gratitude to President for restoring the health of the sick, noting that his contribution goes a long in improving the health indicators of the country.
