He said WAHO continued to be a proactive tool for regional integration in health for the development and implementation of high impact interventions and programmes within the community through capacity building; data collection; evaluation and dissemination; promoting cooperation and coordination, among other things.

He said beyond celebrating the ideals which inspired the Heads of state and Government to establish WAHO, the commemoration offered a platform to draw attention of member states and the international community to major sub-regional health challenges, for greater resource mobilisation.

Dr Crespin said the theme was a wake-up call for implementation of appropriate strategies that would ensure that the health systems contributed to equity and social justice.

‘To achieve this goal, we must chart a proper path for our health systems and strike the right balance between the justifiable health expectations of the populations and the current situation in the sub-region. This is certainly one of the major challenges for our sub-region.

‘Today, more than ever before, we must continue to strive to pool our energies together through cooperation, solidarity and watchfulness to achieve our common goal.

‘At a time when many of our countries are grappling with epidemics in general, especially the outbreak of the Ebola Haemorragic Fever, we would once again like to draw attention to the preventive measures recommended   by WAHO, and hereby express our solidarity and sympathies with the hard-hit populations,’ he said.

Mr Abu D. Kuntulo, General Secretary of Health Services Workers’ Union of TUC-Ghana. said WAHSUN had deemed it fit to propose the joint WAHO Day Celebration as part of its commitment to the provision of quality and affordable healthcare services for the people of Ghana and the sub-region.

He said since the formation of WAHSUN on November 9, 2007 in Abuja, Nigeria, it had adopted a number of declarations, communiques, memoranda and resolutions that focused on health sector reforms, poor working conditions, occupational safety and health issues.

‘In line with our working class solidarity principles, culture and tradition, the Health Workers’ Union of TUC-Ghana and the Medical and Health Workers’ Union of Nigeria had extended and continue and to extend solidarity assistance to their sister health unions in Liberia and Sierra Leone respectively,’ he said.  

Mr Kuntulo said as a network that was poised to work with like-minded organisations in the health sector, WAHSUN last year recruited a research officer to study and produce a research document on WAHO that would serve as a tool to forging close working relationship with that organisation to ensure collaboration and cooperation between the two bodies.

He called on the Government and its agencies to ensure that the needed resources were assembled in preparation for Ebola outbreak in Ghana.

‘We also want our Government to as a matter of priority scale up our national budgetary allocation within the health sector to the 15 per cent in line with the Abuja Declaration of 1989 if we are to achieve universal health coverage for all beyond 2015.

‘We want to call on all health care providers across the country to observe simple but necessary hygiene processes at all facility level to prevent the Ebola infection and its related conditions,’ he said.
