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

The items include 11,840 nose masks, 8,700 face shields and 31,921 safety gowns.

Speaking to the media after the donation, Acting Northern Regional Director of Health Service, Dr Braimah Baba Abubakari, revealed that the region topped the covid-19 vaccination exercise nation wide with about 64 percent of the population fully vaccinated.

He said about 34 percent also received the second booster.

This he said has reflected in the minimal cases of Covid-19 in the region.

Referring to the donation, Dr Braimah said even though Covid-19 is reduced, there are other emerging infectious diseases like Ebola and monkey pox making the donation crucial.

He said the items would go a long way to augment the work of health personnel.

Dr Braimah said the PPEs would be distributed to all health facilities in the region including CHPS compounds.

The Brand Manager of CalBank, Vicentia Amanor, said 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 to improve health care.
