Existing emergency care systems in Ghana are undeveloped in comparison to those in developed countries.
The lack of timely access to care means that many medical needs present themselves as an emergency.
As a result, twenty health practitioners are benefiting from a Community Emergency Care short course by the Africa Higher Education Health Collaborative in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation.
The 4-day workshop by the Mastercard Foundation Africa Higher Education Health Collaborative in partnership with the University of Toronto seeks to equip participants with the requisite skills to drive transformative growth in the health sector.
The course is spearheaded by the health employment pillar of the Collaborative led by Dr Kofi Akohene Mensah.
Speaking at the opening ceremony, the Principal Investigator, Prof. Ellis Owusu-Dabo encouraged the participants to help transform primary healthcare in Ghana.
“There is a lot ahead of us and our target is you. We as Ghanaians must know our nation’s healthcare can only be transformed by us. It is important to know you must come back to serve youth communities,” he said.
The Africa Higher Education Health Collaborative in partnership with the Mastercard Foundation seeks to advance healthcare in Africa through three pillars: Health Employment, Health Entrepreneurship and Health Ecosystem.
Leader of the team from the University of Toronto, Dr Nour Khatib expressed her appreciation to KNUST for the co-creative nature of the course.
