The Millennium Promise Alliance (MPA), an International Non-Governmental Organization has presented 1,000 tablets to the Ghana Health Service (GHS) to support the MOH/GHS vaccination exercise currently ongoing in the Greater Accra and Ashanti Region.

The donation is purposely aimed at supporting the digitization App locally designed by the GHS team to facilitate the roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccination process.

Also, the App which sits on the DHIS2 platform of the GHS will provide real-time results of numbers vaccinated, next due dates and unique identification of the client.

During the presentation, the Executive Director of Millennium Promise Alliance, Chief Nathaniel Ebo Nsarko lauded the developers of the App for their contribution to the “great mission” the Ministry of Health together with the Ghana Health Service have set out at such a critical time in support of health services delivery in Ghana.

Chief Nathaniel Ebo indicated that MPA is keen to promote the utilization of science and technology across the continent to strengthen our existing structures and systems.

He added that the digitization of data during the vaccination exercise will go a long way to provide accurate data and aid in the fight against the pandemic.

The Deputy Director of Public Health at GHS expressed profound gratitude to the MPA, describing the gesture as very timely and also urged other organisations to emulate MPA’s charitable act because the health sector needs more of such help to facilitate a smooth vaccination process in Ghana.
