Ghana’s Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has announced that the government has initiated processes to provide 275 ambulances to boost the operations of the National Ambulance Service.
According to him, each constituency will be given one of the ambulances. Speaking at the opening of the 2018 Annual Health Summit organized by the Ghana Health Service in Accra, Dr Bawumia suggested that the effective operation of the Ghana Ambulance Service would contribute to the general improvement of health delivery in the country.
“You cannot have a National Ambulance Service without ambulances, it becomes a problem. So the government has through the Ministry of Special development Initiative, which works with the development authorities, begun the processes of procuring ambulances for every constituency in this country, and we have 275 constituencies, so we will procure 275 ambulances, all of which will become a part of the national ambulances system to help in the development of health services,” he said.
