This year the issue of Ambulances have become a huge issue of national discussion. Many people have died in this country both in Rural and Urban Communities as a result of unavailability of ambulances to cart sick people to various health care facilities.
Over the past two or three months nothing has been discussed as much as the deteriorating Ghanaian healthcare system.
At the forefront of the discussion — the pathetic fact that the entire country of Ghana, with a population close to 30m, is being served by 55 ambulances.
Citizens have been dying like chickens due to lack of adequate ambulances for years now yet the moment it happened to a politician, we are hearing of the procurement of new ambulances for the nation.
As George Orwell once famously wrote: ‘All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others’.
A 6 year old boy knocked down by a motorcycle has died due to the lack of an ambulance to transport him from the Eastern Region to Accra.
The victim died at the St. Martins Hospital in Agomanya because there was no ambulance available to transfer him to Korle-Bu in Accra to get the specialist care he needed.
