Tamale teaching Hospital Receives $3million worth of PPEs from AMPAHC and CalBank.

The Academic Model Providing Access to Health Care (AMPAHC) and CalBank have donated $3million worth of PPEs to the Tamale Teaching Hospital.

The items which  includes 11,840 nose masks, 8,700 face shields and 31,921 safety gowns, were donated to aid in healthcare delivery at the only referral center in Northern Ghana.

The Brand Manager of CalBank, Vicentia Amanor, said in an interview with FiilaNews that CalBank has been supportive in the health sector as part of its corporate social responsibility, especially during the outbreak of Covid-19.








She said CalBank in partnership with AMPAHC- Ghana has been able to transport into the country five containers loaded with PPEs with the sole aim to improve health care delivery across the country.

The Acting Northern Regional Director of Health Service, Dr Braimah Baba Abubakari, who received the items on behalf of the facility revealed that the region topped the covid-19 vaccination exercise nationwide with about 64 percent of its population fully vaccinated.

He added that an additional 34 percent also received their booster dose, upon completion of the first phase of the vaccines.

Dr Braimah further noted that though Covid-19 cases has reduced drastically, there are other emerging infectious diseases like Ebola and monkey pox hence making the donation gesture very crucial.

He assured that the PPEs would be distributed fairly to all health facilities in the region including CHPS compounds.

On his part, the Director of the Sector for Global Heath, Dr Rajesh Vedanthan, said the donation was initiated by AMPAHC’s partnership with the Medical School at the University for Development Studies.

He said AMPAHC hopes to work with the Ghana Health Service, TTH and other health facilities across the country to help improve healthcare delivery to the masses.
