The Central Regional Health Directorate will now focus on discipline, supportive supervision and high impact service delivery in line with its commitment to improve health care delivery especially in the reduction of maternal and child morbidity.

The Acting Regional Director of Health Services, Dr Samuel Kwashie, Disclosed that the Ghana Health Service (GHS) requires a well disciplined and motivated workforce to achieve its objectives.

The Doctor was speaking on Monday at the “mid-year performance review meeting” of the Regional Health Directorate to assess its performance and evolve strategies to improve it.

Dr Kwashie stressed on the need to ensure a high level of discipline, professional standards and ethical compliance.

He said the directorate had achieved successes in health care delivery such as the eradication of guinea worm while efforts to eradicate others like polio and measles were on course.

He also revealed that there was a marginal reduction in maternal mortality cases with 40 recorded during the first half of the year as against 42 during the same period last year. “The directorate still considers every single preventable maternal death as tragic and unacceptable.”
