Ghana’s Health Sector Can be Better – Accra Director of Catholic Health Services
The newly appointed Director of Health Services of the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra, Very Rev. Fr. Peter Hesse,
has expressed optimism that the future of Ghana’s Health sector will be blissful.
He told Newswatchgh.com that the nation does not lack requisite human resources to improve the health sector but what is required is an attitude of commitment to boost the prospects of the sector.
He emphasized the need for “real dedicated men and women who would go the extra mile to serve all”.
Fr. Hesse was appointed Director of Health Services of the Archdiocese of Accra by
Archbishop Kwofie on July 3, 2020.
He will be responsible for coordinating the activities of the various Health facilities in the Archdiocese, in addition to facilitating the formation and operation of the Archdiocesan Health Board, among others.
Sharing his immediate plans for his new office, Fr. Hesse said “Consultations have to be made. Now the real roadmap is to be looked at one step at a time”.
Touching on COVID -19 pandemic, he said it had exposed some challenges in the health sector regarding human resource hence the need to train many people for the health sector.
He added that as more personnel are trained within the health sector, the infrastructure should be given corresponding attention.
“Health facilities should be looked at seriously”, he concluded.
