Kinapharma Ghana Limited, one of Ghana’s leading brands in the pharmaceutical industry, has lent support to Xoese Ghana’s Fertility Conference, 2024.

The company, which was one of the partners of the 2024 Fertility Conference, provided 10 boxes containing 500 strips of folic acid to be distributed to participants at the event.

The conference was themed: “Breaking Barriers to Infertility: A Comprehensive Education for Women and Couples”, was held on Sunday, June 2, 2024, in Accra.

It aimed at educating women on infertility and providing them with practical ideas and steps they can employ to boost their fertility in order to have their own children.

In an interview with, an executive for International Business, Kwaku Nsiah-Poku, disclosed that Kinapharma decided to support Xoese Ghana because it believes in supporting women’s initiatives as part of the its corporate social responsibilities (CSR).

Mr. Nsiah-Poku noted that the societal pressures against childless couples must be discouraged and infertility stigma should be stopped.

Instead, he averred that rigorous diagnoses should be carried out to ascertain what is causing the infertility in the couples in order for an effective treatment to be offered.

Mr. Nsiah-Poku opined that before marriage, both the man and woman should get screened for infertility in order to get an early treatment should there be a cause.

“That is 50% of the problem solved when a couple check their reproductive organs before getting married.

In this way, they can start treatment before going into the marriage itself. When this is done, they won’t be faced with any pressure if childbirth should delay after the marriage,” he said.

He lauded Xoese Ghana for the initiative and express the hope that more women will benefit and have their desires of having their own children met.
