Ghana: Partner Govt to Strengthen Healthcare Delivery – Dep. Health Minister

The Deputy Minister of Health, Mrs Tina Gifty Naa Ayeley Mensah, has urged private health facilities certified by the Health Facilities Regulatory Agency (HFRA) to partner the government to strengthen healthcare delivery in the country.

This, she said would help the government achieve the Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) three by 2030.

Mrs Mensah, who is also the Member of Parliament for Weija-Gbawe Constituency, made this known at the first anniversary celebration of the Chosen Hospital and Fertility Limited at Tetegu, a community in the Weija-Gbawe Municipality of the Greater Accra Region.

“The Ministry of Health as a sector place premium on universal health coverage as a vehicle necessary for the attainment of SDG three by the year 2030, as a result, we are putting every effort to ensure that all people living in Ghana have access to equitable, quality, affordable and evidence base preventive and creative health services without any financial burden.

However, it must be emphasised that, government cannot do it alone and it will need partnerships from stakeholders and private hospitals to join in the vision, to be able to achieve this goal,” she stated.

The anniversary which was held in Accra, commemorated a celebration of love, life, health, excellence, and the resilience of the human spirit.

The hospital started in 2018 at All Faith Medical Centre as a fertility unit, however in 2022, they moved out and established a health centre to combine fertility treatment with other medical treatment.
