“Out of the 30 infrastructural projects that we inherited from the previous government in the health sector, we have completed 16 of them,” he touted.
“These include 10 polyclinics, two district hospitals. There’s also ongoing construction of another nine district hospitals.”
He continued: “We completed the upgrading of the Tamale Teaching hospital, we completed the ongoing construction of the offices of the Ministry for Health and regulatory bodies, we completed the Ga East Municipal Hospital.”
