MINISTRY OF HEALTH COMMISSIONS A GHC 14 MILLION MEDICAL EQUIPMENT FOR THE SEPARATION OF THE CONJOINED TWINS AT GARH

Published on

The Minister for Health, Hon. Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, commissioned over GHC 14 million medical equipment on Thursday for the separation of the conjoined twins at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital.

The minister said the equipment will go a long way toward strengthening the position of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital as a hub for medical tourism in the subregion. He added that the Ministry of Health in collaboration with the Ghana College of Physicians had prepared the ground for the training of medical personnel in various specialties. 

The equipment to be used to help save the conjoined twins will prevent many others from seeking complex medical care abroad. He added.

The technical lead for the multidisciplinary team working to separate the twins, Dr. Samuel Kaba, expressed gratitude for the swift response by the government to support the separation, noting that the existence of the equipment at GARH, which makes Ghana the first country in the subregion to own such modern technologies, has already been used to save many Ghanaians.

The Medical Director for GARH, Dr. Emmanuel Srofenyoh, promised to ensure that the equipment is properly maintained to work at optimum capacity while stressing the Greater Accra Regional Hospital’s resolve to continue supporting the parents of the twins and see to the total separation of their babies.
