The Director General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS) Dr. Anthony Nsiah-Asare, has maintained that the government’s policy on the wearing of the Hijab by Muslim nurses has not been reviewed, hence they must be allowed to wear them.

Dr. Nsiah -Asare’s comment comes on the back of the media report that a student nurse was denied a practical attachment offer at the Greater Accra Regional Hospital because she was wearing a veil.

In an Interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA), Dr. Nsiah-Asare described as unfortunate and noted that the GHS has since sent letters to all Regional Health Directors, Medical Superintendents, Polyclinic-In -Charges, Metro, Municipal and District Directors of Health Services in the region, prompting them of the fact that the move contravened government’s policy directive which gave approval to the wearing of the hijab.

 He urged the authorities to ensure a strict adherence to the directive by all managers and staff concerned.

Dr. Nsiah-Asare also said the GHS has directed all public hospitals in the Greater Accra region to allow Muslim nurses wear their hijabs without any hindrances.
