The event which took place at the premises of the Medical Training and Simulation Centre, Legon in Accra saw in attendance invited guests, media and dignitaries including; Rev. Prof. Patrick F. Ayeh-Kumi, Dr Abena Engmann ( Board Chairperson of Ghana Health Awards & Honors), Dr Solomon Brookman ( Head, General Surgery Dept, UGMC), and Dr Darius Osei (Chief Executive Officer of the University of Ghana Medical Centre Limited).
The Ghana Health Awards and Honors is dedicated to the Ghana Health industry recognizing individuals and organizations making a positive impact in Ghana's health sector.
Speaking at the press soirée, Mrs Nana Adwoa Konadu Dsane, the founder of the Ghana Thyroid Foundation and the Ghana Health Awards and Honors said health workers deserved recognition for their sacrifices.
”Though people have had bad experiences when it comes to their healthcare providers, there are some who are doing so well and would even not go home when there’s a life to save," she said.
"I’ve come across a lot of them because of the Thyroid Ghana Foundation. Especially during the COVID-19 time, some stayed away from their families for 2 weeks without their families seeing them. Don't you think they deserve some recognition? I think this is long overdue!,” she added.
The Ghana Health Awards and Honors themed "Our Health, Our Heroes" is scheduled to take place on March 2023 at the Medical Training and Simulation Centre, Legon in Accra.
