The Board of Trustees Chairman for the Rotational Nurses and Midwives Association (RNMA), Mr Jerry Aziamadia Mertins has predicted that Ghana will soon lack nurses and midwives due to the poor condition of service by the government.
According to the Board Chairman, until conditions of service for healthcare workers are improved in the country, brain draining in the health sector will continue.
Mr Aziamadia categorically stated that the country will lose its Nurses and Midwives in the next five years to come if strategic measures are not taken to improve the service of health professionals.
Speaking in an interview with Nhyiraba Nartey Solomon of Bryt FM, Mr Aziamadia affirmed that Ghana is experiencing high brain drain in the health sector with professionals leaving in droves to seek greener pastures.
He expressed fears that the situation can lead to a dire impact on healthcare delivery if urgent steps are not taken to address the issues of brain drain in the country.
Mr Aziamadia, therefore, urged the government to improve the condition of service for the health workers in order to reduce the higher number of brain drain in the health sector.
Mr Aziamadia statement follows the higher number of brain drain in the health sector with professionals leaving in droves to seek greener pastures.
