It will be under the theme: ‘Ghana Beyond Aid: The Role of Nuclear Technology’.

Friday, October 18, which marks the end of the celebrations, will see a blood donation exercise held in the morning and a social event interspersed with indoor games in the afternoon. The celebrations are expected to educate the public on the peaceful applications of nuclear technology, latest trends in the diagnosis and the treatment of cancers as well as the work of the Commission and the Nuclear Regulatory Authority (NRA). RSA of the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission and the Nuclear Regulatory Authority with a membership of about 200 members of diverse background is more than a pressure group or social club. It is a multi-purpose association that serves amongst other things as a professional body, trade union, welfare association, social club and a mouth-piece for its members.
