DGN online’s sources say the Ambulances were procured by the Ministry for Special Initiatives and would be handed over to the Ministry of Health for onward delivery.
The medical vehicles, unveiled at the Silver Star Auto Limited by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, are fitted with modern equipment and built to suit Ghana’s terrain.
The provision of the Ambulances is in fulfillment of President Akufo-Addo’s December 2018 promise to provide Ambulances to all the 275 constituencies to solve the ambulance deficit in Ghana’s health sector.
The health sector had come under the spotlight for its huge ambulance deficit of only 55 functioning ambulances to the whole population.
The new ambulances will therefore shore up government’s efforts to enhance emergency healthcare delivery in the country.
