As part of measures to bridge the Doctor-Patient ratio in the country, the Ghana National Petroleum Cooperation (GNPC) Foundation together with the Ministry of Health has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the government of Cuba to train 170 Medical students and 30 specialists in Cuba.
The Ministries of Health for the two countries signed the agreement last week during president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s visit to Cuba.
In attendance were the Executive Director of the GNPC Foundation, Dominic Eduah and the technical negotiations team from GNPC.
Others included officials from the Ministries of Health and Foreign Affairs.
Currently, the national doctor-to-patient ratio of one doctor to about 8000 patients, a situation that had fallen short of the World Health Organisation (WHO) recommended ratio of one doctor to 1,320 patients.
