Communicate The Safety Of Health Facilities To The General Public-UNICEF To HPOs

 Authorities of The United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund have advised Health Promotion Officers in the Ashanti Region to step up education on the safety of health facilities to improve access to healthcare following the COVID-19 pandemic.


According to the organization, Health Promotion Officers  should build the confidence of communities in the facilities as the best places to receive proper care without compromising their safety in the midst of the pandemic.

Madam Charity Nikoi, a Communication Specialist with the United Nations International  Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) who made the call, said people should not be reluctant in seeking medical attention in health facilities for fear of contracting COVID-19.

She was addressing the participants of a three-day training for Health Promotion Officers and representatives of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in health in Kumasi.
