Stay in Ghana, help improve health care delivery instead of running abroad for greener pastures – GAHS dir. to nurses, doctors

The Director of the Ghana Adventist Health Services (GAHS), Dr James Antwi, has bemoaned the now-regular exodus of Ghanaian health workers; doctors and nurses, to the Western world to seek greener pastures.  

Dr Antwi, who noted the practice was not helping the development of the country’s health sector, appealed to health workers leaving the country to consider staying in order to provide quality health care to Ghanaians.

Speaking at a fundraiser for the construction of a community centre at Adunku in the Bosomtwi District of the Ashanti region, Dr Antwi, described Ghanaian health workers as top-notch and commended them for their quality health care delivery.

He also appealed to health workers to stay in the country to help develop health care delivery. 

“The exodus of health workers is destroying the sector. We will plead with those doing that to stay here in Ghana to enable us develop the health sector. 

“Because when they all leave, who will take care our grandmothers and grandfathers, our parents,, brothers and sisters?” Dr Antwi asked.
