IHDN mission hospital is calling on health workers to volunteer to the rural areas to assist in delivering of quality health care.

Mr Francis Tamakloe, a member of the International Health and Development Network (IHDN) said it is time for nurses and doctors to leave thier 'comfort zones' to the villages because 'that is where the work is'.

Speaking at the launch of the 10th anniversary celebration of IHDN Mission Hospital, Dr Tamakloe said Accra is choked with a lot of health workers who sometimes are unwilling to go to the villages.

“…there is the need to move from our comfort zones. Urban Ghana needs to start thinking of village Ghana; think about the people in the villages who are in dire need of proper health…we need more hands”

Activities lined up for the celebration include fundraising, visiting churches, market places for health campaigns on daily basis, road shows and a durbar to climax it all on 28th July, 2018 at Agbozome in the Volta Region.

The aim of the fundraising is to raise funds to buy a $70,000 Digital X-ray machine and also cut sod for the Radiology Diagnostic center.

The theme for the anniversary is “10 years of improving the health of the community through primary health care”
