The Minister of Health-designate, Kwaku Agyemang Manu has said that 13 districts are yet to give lands for the building of their share of the President’s 88 district healthcare facilities.

He said this when he appeared on the Appointments Committee today, February 10, 2021.

He said the President’s promise was suppose to take into action so he established a committee at the presidency, led by the Chief of Staff.

” I was a member”, the Health Minister-designate said, adding: “We pooled one or two facilities from our ministry”.

“There was a representation from the Ghana Health Service, too”, he included.

He further stated: “What they asked us to do immediately was to write to all the district directors for health services to allocate land and give us the site plans of where they want these district hospitals to be sited”.

“As I speak, we still have close to about 13 districts that have not completed this exercise,” he informed the Committee.

The President, in the lead-up to the December 2020 polls, said: “There are 88 districts in our country without district hospitals; we have six (6) new regions without regional hospitals; we do not have five infectious disease control centres dotted across the country, and we do not have enough testing and isolation centres for diseases like COVD-19.”

“There are 88 districts in our country without district hospitals; we have six (6) new regions without regional hospitals; we do not have five infectious disease control centres dotted across the country, and we do not have enough testing and isolation centres for diseases like COVD-19.” the President assured.
