President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has said that Ghana is developing a comprehensive primary healthcare package for its citizens.
According to Nana Addo, this would mean better health outcomes for Ghanaians, lower costs for healthcare services, and healthier families and communities.
Speaking on the sidelines of the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly, the president made this known.
“We have launched the world’s largest medical drone delivery service to some fifteen (15) health facilities, as part of the first phase of the service.”
Akufo-Addo explained at the launch of the “Global Action Plan for Healthy Lives and Well-being for All” that, the plan is to help urge countries and the World Health Organization to co-ordinate a process of developing an action plan to propel progress towards realizing SDG No. 3.
In Ghana, based on the Global Action Plan and the Universal Health Coverage 2030 Compact, Akufo-Addo told the gathering that Ghana is re-strategising on her healthcare architecture.
“My government is committed to improving access to essential and quality health services through the provision of the necessary health infrastructure, equipment and logistics, including the deployment of appropriate technology, as part of our drive to attaining Universal Health Coverage,” President Akufo-Addo said.
This, he said, has been achieved through the implementation of the Free Senior High School (Free SHS) policy. The President was speaking at the 30th Anniversary of the adoption of “The Convention on the Rights of the Child”, on the sidelines of the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.
