To kickstart the second phase of the Global Health Security Agenda project under the theme “Enhancing Global Health Security: Expanding Efforts and Strategies to Protect and Improve Public Health Globally”, CfHSS has once again paid courtesy calls to its stakeholders.
CfHSS paid an official visit to the Director General of Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye to discuss plans for project implementation in the region for the year. Similarly, CfHSS visited the Northern Regional Director of Health (Dr. J.B Eleeza) in Tamale.
The main discussion points included:
Establishment of a sustainable sample referral system for laboratory facilities in Ghana.
Introduction of a novel digital technology for priority pathogens testing in Public Health Laboratories in Ghana, and
Continue support to strengthen sequencing capacity in Ghana
We also used the opportunity to officially seek for their unending support to enable the project come to fruition. Also present at the call was the Director for Public Health (GHS), Head of the Tamale Public Health Laboratory and the Northern Regional Health Administrator.
