The pharmacy council has organized a stakeholder’s workshop to disseminate findings of mapping gaps in pharmaceutical services in the upper west region.
The findings of mapping exercise are to identify gaps in pharmaceutical services provisions in the upper west and provide pharmaceutical centres to the communities that are lacking access to medical pharmacies.
In an interview with anfrebeats.com, the Deputy Registrar, Professional Development of the pharmacy council, Albert Wiredu Arkoh said that findings show that most people find it very difficult to have access to medicine in most communities in the upper west region and they want to make sure the communities within the upper west region will have access to pharmacy centres.
Mr Albert Wiredu Arkoh stressed that they want to extend their findings to other regions in the country to make sure every region which lacks access to pharmaceutical centres will be provided.
The President of the pharmaceutical society of Ghana, Mr Benjamin Kwame Botwi also added that the findings conducted by the pharmacy council will help the provide access service to medical health care and help improve the quality standards of living.
