Accra Regional Hospital receives surgical equipment

The Surgical Unit of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital (GARH) has taken delivery of medical equipment valued at US$ 70,000 for the establishment of a laparoscopic surgical project meant to reduce pain and haemorrhaging in patients during surgery.

The equipment, which was funded by the Korean Government through the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) includes telescopes, trocar, coagulating and dissecting electrode, suction and irrigation tubes, camera head, video adaptor and laparoscopic simulator.

The project, aimed at sharing knowledge and applying modern technology in the area of health and medicine for quality service delivery, would also create opportunity for the training of specialist doctors and other health professionals to improve surgical procedures.

Laparoscopic surgery is a modern surgical technique under which surgical operations are performed without big openings of the body parts of a patient, but rather through a small incision elsewhere in the body.

The project

Briefing the media in Accra last Monday, the Korean Ambassador to Ghana, Mr Woonki Lyeo, said the project was a good one and would enable patients to recover faster, adding, “The turnover of hospital beds and cost of medical care will also be reduced by increasing cost effectiveness.”

He said the agency commenced the project in September 2016 with the procurement of the instrument and training of staff for use and maintenance of the equipment to ensure effective usage at the hospital.

“This year, we also plan to run a surgical skill education programme, organise a study group for the laparoscopic surgery and an exchange programme with universities and academic societies in South Korea,” he said.

Mr Lyeo believed the project would strengthen surgery competencies in the country and the surgical unit would serve as a strategic position for the exchange of technology and knowledge. He added that the Korean government would continue the long-lasting commitment to strengthen the co-operative ties between the two countries.


Receiving the items on behalf of the hospital, the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr Ebenezer Appiah-Denkyira, lauded the kind gesture of KOICA and assured of proper use of the equipment.

He, therefore, appealed to the agency to attach a skill laboratory to their project to ensure maximum efficiency.

For his part, the Medical Director of the hospital, Dr Thomas Anabah, said since the arrival of the agency at the hospital with the “Global Doctor” programme in 2016, it had provided specialists to assist the hospital on the use and maintenance of surgical equipment.

He said there were national needs for laparoscopic surgery from GHS to first-line doctors, and the consultants with laparoscopic training experience would make a feasible and sustainable surgical skill with minimum education.

    Engineers have come up with a solution to resolve these issues with a help of mobile software that
    will act as a mobile spy to monitor all the
    activities in a particular mobile phone. In order not to sound like that, you need a voice changer that has more than 2 or 3 adjustments.
    Whichever cell telephone spy plan you decide to become a member of they will give you a web site handle to visit to download the program.

  87. maitre gims nouvel album 2017   July 6, 2017 at 7:52 am

    This could be a good way of detecting if any spy app is really present on your Android phone
    or not. This computer software installs discreetly and no matter who is working with the cell phone they will not
    detect the cell phone monitoring software installed.
    Today, I and Bianca have become best friends again.
