200 girls contract candidiasis – Binbilla SHS


Binbilla high school has just one toilet KVIP with about 8 holes to serve over a 1000 female students, the students complained of heat and stench each time they used the facility. This has led the students to resort to open defecation.

A health screening conducted at the school found that over 200 girls had contracted candidiasis, a yeast infect with symptoms including white discharge from the vagina, itching and vaginal odor.

Some students speaking to a reporter of Joy news said “if you are squatting there’s some heat that enters your private part, people use paper to cover their vaginal”.

Nsem woha entreats the general public and government to come to the aid of the school.
