I was so happy when premarital check up have become mandatory according to the law, it gave me hope that people began to think in the right direction at last. But unfortunately for some reason I find out that it is a fake check up , no one is doing it for real !!
A friend of mine was going to get married from a couple of months ago , she went to a public hospital with her fiancé to get this certificate and both of them were ready to have serious check up. They were expecting to stay in the hospital for hours , well it took less than one hour actually because they did not have a real check up. Some doctors signed the certificate without getting up from their desks while other doctors who really cared asked them if they were feeling alright !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I checked about the matter further and I found out that you can have the certificate without going to the hospital if you know a doctor !!
I do not understand how things got to this level !!?? It is the mistake of both the ministry of health and the people themselves.
The ministry of health should highlight the importance of this check up by raising the awareness of the people and it also should force the doctors in its public hospitals to do their job for real.
The people from their side must understand the importance of this check-up and how it could saves lives literally , STD destroys lives if they transmit to the to other . You also got the RH blood group tests too.
People must be keen to have this check up , it is their right. I know some people in some class especially men will be embarrassed from these check as if it is an insult to their manhood but it is beyond that I am afraid. There should be a real awareness campaign on this just like smoking and H1N1
Dear reader if you are going to marry , make sure to have a real pre-martial check , it is your right and more important the right of your future child.
