A former Medical Officer at the Wa Regional Hospital, Dr. Amoo Acheampong is calling on the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Services to urgently launch investigations into the exodus of doctors from the facility.

According to Dr. Amoo, failure to do so would put the Regional Hospital in danger, because apart from the Medical Director of the Regional Hospital, Dr. Aduko Amiah a Consultant Surgeon, who is due for retirement in June 2015, the hospital has some six House Officers who would be leaving at the end of March 2015, and some visiting Doctors.

According to him, the rate of stealing at Medical Personnel Residential Houses at Jahan and Airstrip Medical Residential areas was de-motivating the doctors to stay at the facility.

Dr. Amoo said he became a victim to the situation when on October 20, 2014; robbers broke into his bungalow five days after occupying it at Airstrip area leading to the loss of his hard drive, surgical instruments and personal belongings.

After the incident, the hospital authority arranged and detailed security men to the residential areas, but those security men stopped coming a few days later. The only Gynecologist Specialist at the hospital, Dr. Dalatu Aziz was also burgled.

He subsequently resigned from the Ghana Health Services in a letter dated January 28, 2015, which was addressed to the Director General Ghana Health Service, the Regional Director of Health Services , Upper West and the Medical Director, Regional Hospital Wa.

Dr. Dalatu Aziz’s resignation took effect from March, 2015, leaving the facility with Dr. Amiah and the six House Officers, with the support of some visiting Medical Consultants. When contacted, the Medical Director of Wa Regional Hospital confirmed the spate of burglary and stealing at the two residential areas of Medical officers, but pleaded that issues about the hospital are normally handled by the Regional Health Director, Dr. Abdullai Fogor.

Dr. Abdullai Fogor, on his part, told The Chronicle that the Directorate and the Hospital Authority with the Regional Security Council were doing their possible best to help curb the situation, adding that currently the security has been beefed up in the two residential areas.

On the issue of poorly furnished consulting rooms, Dr. Abdullai Fogor indicated that Dr. Amoo Acheampong should have resorted to the internal resolution process in dealing with the issues raised if indeed they are true, instead of running to the Press.

He said currently because of the National Health Insurance issue, there is lack of money to evenly furnish every department of the hospital at once and that management has to prioritize some key areas or department and manage the situation till the situation improved.

The Chronicle chanced upon a letter written through the Regional Health Directorate to the Regional Minister of Upper West requesting for security assistance due to the alarming spate of burglary and stealing at Medical Personnel Residential Houses at Jahan and Airstrip Medical Residential areas.

The letter recalled some years back, when the Cuban Medical Brigade fell victim to the canker and that led to an arrangement with the police to provide them with 24-hour security.

According to the letter a lot of burglary activities have been carried out in the two residential areas in 2012 and 2013 including the residences of the former Deputy Director (Public Health) and the Regional Hospital Accountant.

The letter stated that in the year 2014 several attempts were made on staff residential houses, with the most alarming one which occurred on October 20, 2014 in which the residence of the newly posted Doctor, Dr. Amoo Acheampong was burgled in less than five days of occupying the bungalow.

Dr. Abdullai Fogor emphasized the effort to help improve security at the residential areas, urging that everybody must assist by being security conscious because all are vulnerable to robbery.

Accra during the weekend to climax the month-long celebration of the International Women’s Day which was observed on March 8.

The health walk, aimed at drawing public attention to the need to continue efforts to empower women in the Ghanaian society, was organised by UNAIDS in partnership with Strategic Communications Africa Limited (Stratcomm Africa), Ghana AIDS Commission and the Accra Metropolitan Assembly.

Participants in the walk included women from various associations, human rights advocates, the media and other members from the general public.

The walk also raised awareness of women’s empowerment issues, including sexual and reproductive health issues. The programme began at 6:30am from the Osu Police Station and proceeded through the John Evans Atta-Mills High street, ending at Mantse Agbona in James Town.

At the end of the walk, a forum, drama and music on women empowerment and HIV and AIDS prevention and treatment were organised. Involving women in development

Participants also had the opportunity to undergo HIV testing and counselling, access condoms and information, education and communication materials on various empowerment issues.

Speaking at the forum, the Chief Executive Officer of StratComm Africa, Mrs Esther Cobbah, said women needed to be empowered to participate largely in the running of the economy of the country as well as the development agenda.

According to her, if women were able to manage the home with daily money (chop money) given to them by their partners well, then they should be involved in the management of the economy of the country as well.

“I believe that if they are included in the management of the economy, they will manage it well and the economy will be nourished, enriched and energised,” she added.

When the right environment is created for women, Mrs Cobbah said, they excel, and therefore asked that the right environment should be designed to cater for the development of women.

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Country representative, Ms Christine Evans-Klock, commended Ghana for the successes chalked in women empowerment and gender equality over the years.

However, she said more needed to be done to promote women and girls’ rights and empower them.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.
