Ghana Health Service Receives 40 Modified Tricycle Ambulances From Catholic Relief Service
Health service delivery in the country is not without challenges. Though some well-endowed communities in the country can boast of optimum health delivery system others have to struggle and think outside the box in order to meet patients' needs. Inadequate ambulances to transport patients and pregnant women in emergency situations have resulted in the death of some patients. One of the emergency preparedness tools that improve the outcome of emergencies is the availability of ambulances. In an emergency situation, time is a very important factor and the prognosis is quite good if patients are transported quickly to the appropriate facility for treatment.
The Catholic Relief Service (CRS) has identified this gap and decided to fill it. The CRS has donated a total of 40 modified tricycle ambulances and 11 health commodity delivery vans to the Ghana Health Service. This donation took place on Tuesday, 18th May 2021 at Tamale. This is to improve health service delivery in the communities in the North. Nurses and midwives working at the various CHPS (Community-based Health Planning and Services) compounds can now refer emergency cases in time. This will save lives in the long run.
