The World Bank has donated two vehicles to the Ghana Centre for Disease Control (GCDC) and Public Health Emergency Operations Center (PHEOC), under the Ghana Health Service to support them in their work.

The vehicles, a Toyota Hilux double cabin and a Toyota Land Cruiser v8, worth thousands of Cedis were donated on November 5 at the National Disease Control Department.

A Senior Operations Officer of Health, Population and Nutrition of the World Bank Group Ghana, Tony Sedor, who presented the vehicles on behalf of the bank, said it was the bank’s way of supporting activities of Ghana’s Emergency Operations Centre to deal with outbreak of diseases promptly and to enhance the operational systems of Public Health Emergencies in Ghana.

He hoped that they could support bigger projects in the near future.

For his part, the Director of Public Health Division, Dr. Badu Sarkodie, who received the items on behalf of the Director-General of the Ghana Health Service expressed appreciation and commended the generosity of the Bank and promised that the center would ensure that the vehicles are used for its intended purposes.

In addition to the donation of the vehicles was the handing over of the site to a Contractor  for the completion of the 2nd and 3rd Block located at Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for offices of the Ghana Centre for Disease Control (GCDC) and Public Health Emergency Operations Centre which is also being funded by the  World Bank Group.
