On our first morning in Tamale, I woke up to a phone call from the Chief Director’s assistant saying that the Chief Director of the MOH had signed the invoice and memorandum authorizing MedPLUS Connect to ship 5 more 40 ft containers of medical supplies and equipment! At the moment, I wasn’t sure what I found more exciting: that fact that the document was signed or the fact that someone in the MOH took the initiative to actually call us ☺.
Based on our previous discussions with the MOH in Accra, we together decided that three of the containers will be sent to the Northern Region, with destinations determined by the Regional Director of Health Services. The 4th container will be sent to the Upper East Region and will have a general surgical focus to compliment the 2 containers of beds, equipment, and consumable supplies that are currently on their way from the USA . The destination for the 5th container will be based on the outcome of site visits and meetings conducted over the next three weeks.
