Slaughterhouses or Abattoirs form a very vital link in the process of getting meat to the public. It is at slaughterhouses or slaughter premises that animals are killed and dressed ready for sale or use. To neglect such a vital link constitutes neglect for health of a nation or community. Strict health regulations are needed to ensure that good disease-free meat gets to consumers under good conditions. As .part of the general drive to achieve “Health for all by the year 2000” and Primary Health Care Programmes, it will be unfortunate to trust food or meat consumed, to any willing and eager but unqualified butcher. Ghana must see and appreciate the importance of what is taken in. The nation’s health is therefore in its own hands. Abattoirs operating under strict health and hygiene standards are a must!
