The Ghana Coalition of NGOs in Health has called on the Ghana Health Service, to establish a National Control Programme on COVID-19.

The Coalition said this is to ensure access and equity in the testing and support services. This was contained in a statement signed by its National President Dr. Gabriel Benarku.

According to the Coalition, parts of the country still do not have the basic logistics to properly manage situations of community spread of COVID-19 and therefore recommended that standard precautionary measures be rolled out and enforced.

It suggested that the Ghana Health Service establish strategic guidelines with the Coalition and other health-related NGOs.

Dr Benarku asked the  Ghana Health Service to develop anti-stigma and anti-discrimination strategies, which should be amplified by involving CSOs at the district and regional levels and also to form a national task force to monitor COVID-19 interventions to ensure equity in the distribution of resources and accountability.
