Africa Partners Medical Ghana, an offshoot of Africa Partners Medical a U.S.A based Non-Profit organisation which began in 2002, on Monday, 7th June, 2021 officially launched their Ghana highly patronised and expertly coordinated training sessions for all Health Workers across the country for the year.
Africa Partners Medical Partners Ghana whose work is to build capacity for improved healthcare in Ghana, through services and training that primarily focuses on practical exposure of health workers to techniques and methods high medical care obtained in more advanced economies of the world has been in existence to help reshape the narrative. We believe that a well educated front-liner who has adequate skills and technique can save more lives which can go a long way to reduce disability, morbidity and mortality in Ghana.
APMG, a registered NGO in Ghana also believes that the non-core staff of hospitals should be trained. In that vein it is expedient to state that our training has been extended to offer the opportunity to Non-healthcare workers to acquire training to assist medical emergency teams as rescuers.
On Wednesday, 23rd June, 2021 APMG donated some items to the doctors and nurses at the ICU of Ridge Hospital. The organisation donated the following items;
Covid Relief Pack, Adult Surgical Mask, Sanitizer Spray, Pack of Vitamin C, Pack of Disposal Gloves, Antibacterial wipes, KN95, Face Shield, Shoe Cover, Disposal Gown and many more.
During the presentation of the items, the Board Chair, Dr. Charles Tsegah said; “the organisation is here to partner in the provision of quality tailor made health education programs and medical equipment donations to help prevent needless deaths in the country”
The Medical Director of Ridge Hospital Dr. Srofenyo Emmanuel, called on Corporate Bodies, Government and Non-Governmental Bodies to sponsor or support a health carer to receive training, in order to help in the fight against high increased mortality and curbing needless deaths which could have been avoided should the front liner had received basic skills to handle emergencies.
According to the Public Relations Officer who is also a registered Nurse, Sara Danquah Yeboah, APM and its partners has donated medical equipments and supplies totalling over 750,000USD to help support healthcare in Ghana. In the beginning 2021 at the height of the pandemic, APM and her partners donated Covid Relief packs/ Personal Protective Equipments (PPEs) to some front-liners working on covid cases (Nurses and Physicians) in the Intensive Care Units in all regional hospitals across Ghana. We are currently hoping to do more till every healthcare worker is covered in Ghana.
