Ghana has made commendable progress in recent years in improving the quality health care services provided to the citizens through the dedication and hard work of healthcare professionals, policymakers and other stakeholders.
This is through the implementation of various initiatives and strategies to enhance healthcare delivery.
The Director in charge of External Health Coordination at the Ministry of Health, Dr Hafiz Adams said this when a team from Democratic Republic of Congo paid a study visit to the Ministry on Tuesday at Accra.
The purpose of the visit was to study, interact and exchange information on the development of a national strategic plan for improving quality of care and services.
Dr Hafiz Adams who received the team on behalf of the minister said that, “Healthcare is a fundamental human right and it is our shared responsibility to ensure that our people have access to quality healthcare services.”
He also acknowledged the significance of collaboration and knowledge sharing in advancing efforts to provide the best possible care for citizens.
He stated that “Ghana and the Democratic Republic of Congo share common aspirations and challenges in the health sector. We face similar issues such as limited financial, human and infrastructural resources, to improve diverse health needs of our populations. However, we also share a strong determination to overcome these challenges to improve the health outcomes of our people. This has led to us unearthing valuable lessons from our experiences and best practices.”
As part of the visit, the team is expected to visit some agencies under the Ministry and some selected hospitals in the Greater Accra Region.
