Good Neighbors Ghana held a handover ceremony of tablet devices at Accra City Hotel, Ghana on the 1st of January, to celebrate the launch of the tablet-based E-tracker application. In attendance at the ceremony were representatives from Ghana Health Service (GHS) and Ministry of Health, Embassy of Korea, officials from Korea International Development Agency, head of Mobile division at Samsung Ghana, and so on.
As the highlight of the event, the tablet devices donated by Samsung, a premier Korean corporation, were given to Ghana Health Service (GHS). The devices will be used to digitalize health information collected from the lowest level districts. In addition to the handover, the tablet-based E tracker program was launched. The E-tracker allows the staff to collect, manage, and analyze the health data at the community site, which enhances the tracking of individual health status and improves the Ghana’s overall health system.
Good Neighbors Ghana continues to actively support GHS through the training of community-based health planning and services (CHPS) staff in collaboration with GHS. And the Korea corporations help the cause by assisting health workers deal with hardware issues and giving technical assistance. Using ICT, Good Neighbors Ghana will dedicate themselves to supporting Ghana Health Service for the purpose of providing excellent Health Service and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
