Governing board of College of Physicians and Surgeons, 3 other boards inaugurated

The Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyemang-Manu, has charged four newly-inaugurated boards of institutions his Ministry has oversight over, to ensure productivity and run efficiently. These include the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons, Allied Health Professions Council, Centre for Plant Medicine Research, and the Nursing and Midwifery Council.

Each of these boards is headed by the President’s nominee and has a tenure of four years. At an event to swear members of these boards into office in Accra on December 7, 2021, the Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang-Manu, admonished them to make better use of their internally generated funds (IGF) to make up for the government’s funding shortfalls.

“Agencies should support the ministry through their IGF. Certain allowances should be paid with IGF within the facilities. I would plead with the agencies to look at IGF management and see how best we can have optimum value for the little resources we generate from there,” he said.

Board of Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons

The 13-member board of the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons is chaired by Prof. Yaw Adu-Gyamfi. Other members include the College’s rector, Prof. Richard M.K. Adanu, President of the college, Dr. John Nkrumah Mills and a representative of CEOs of teaching hospitals, Dr. Oheneba Owusu-Danso.
