Accessibility and affordability vital in healthcare delivery

Prof Manu explained that although medical care is about providing patients with the necessary attention and medication to ensure their health security; it is also about putting up better business plans at the facility to earn enough profit.

He said this during the official launch of the Dr K. N. Tamaklo Memorial Health Symposium and the 45th anniversary celebration of the Nyaho Medical Centre in Accra.

Prof Manu noted the need to find measures to ensure accessibility and affordability in healthcare delivery, which he said is very vital.

Mrs Kate Quartey Papafio, an Entrepreneur who was present at the celebration supported the assertions by Prof Manu, adding that as long as a private health facility offers clients what they want such as prompt delivery, quality service at a minimal time, then they must be prepared to pay the requisite amount.

“The public healthcare centres sometimes fails to give us what we need, therefore those who can afford the private health facilities seek for their medical attention which gives us satisfactory services,” she said.
