About thirteen (13) acres of the reclaimed Agbogbloshie land has been offered for the construction of Ablekuma Central District Hospital as part of the implementation of the government's flagship project dubbed "genda 111"
The area which used to be a major hub for hazardous e-west was cleared by a team led by the Greater Accra Regional Minister, Mr Henry Quartey weeks ago. Dozens of onion teaders and scrap dealers who were occupying the area were relocated to Adjen Kotoku to continue their economic activities.
The implementation of the Agenda 111 began on Tuesday, following the historic sod cutting ceremony by the president in the Ashanti Region. In the next 18 months, 88 district hospitals are expected to be constructed.
President Akufo-Addo is confident the completion of these hospitals will position Ghana as a major destination for medical tourism in the sub-region.
The initiative is also expected to create permanent employment for not less than 20,000 health care professionals across the country.
