Introducing “Ask Docta!”
“Ask Docta!” is an innovative program by the Cameroonian born General Surgeon, Dr. med. Emmanuel Anyangwe Ngassa. The idea is fairly simple. With “Ask Docta!” Dr. Anyangwe Ngassa introduces a new instrument for executing the task of educating the general public on medicine and health care thereby taking efforts one step further by using the most powerful language available to most West Africans, namely Pidgin English, on the one hand and the every growing medium of the internet on the other hand. By default “Ask Docta!” or ask the doctor in English aims at reaching people of all works of life independent of their education level. Although the videos are in Pidgin English, all feedbacks from the general public can be done in Pidgin English, English, French, German and Italian.
