Our checks from Ghana Medical Association’s 60 years anniversary celebration in koforidua has confirmed that the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in his address at the annual general conference of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) themed “The role of GMA in healthcare 60 years on” informed the association of government’s intention to use drones for medical distribution.
“A Memorandum of Understanding had been signed with a company, operating in Rwanda for the use of drones to deliver blood and some highly needed medicines to remote areas by the first quarter of next year.”
“our centres would be established across the country to ensure that medicines and blood requirements in the remotest areas could be deployed within 20 minutes” Dr. Bawumia indicated.
The Vice President underlined the government’s unwavering determination to ensure that the people had access to quality health care.
The gathering applauded loudly for such innovation without raising any issues with it.
It is surprising that the Ghana Medical Association is denying that they were not informed .
