The Daily Graphic says it is worrying to hear that the allocation of funds to Ghana towards the elimination of HIV/AIDS, TB and malaria has reduced from $250 million in the 2015 to 2017 implementation period to 194 million for the next three years. The paper says it is unfortunate because the reduction comes at a time intervention services are still not reaching the marginalised and under privileged in some parts of the country. The Graphic is saddened that at a time TB, cases are said to be on the rise, resources required to successfully scale-up the response are dwindling. It says it may be encouraging that the country has made modest gains in malaria control and HIV prevention but the truth is that as a country Ghana should improve upon its performance or simply up its game.

Ghanaian Times: asks how prepared the country is for a major earthquake, in the face of Sundays earth tremors in parts of Weija and Gbawe. It says Ghana has had to struggle to deal with lesser disasters amidst complaints of inadequate resources for disaster response. The paper notes the warning by the Geological Survey Authority, of an imminent earthquake and asks that it be resourced to provide information for policy decisions. The Times expresses its confidence in the Authority, while urging engineers, developers and regulatory institutions to enforce building laws. It also calls for proactive measures in managing disasters.
