Mr Kojo Frimpong, a government spokesperson at the Ministry of Information has called on Ghanaians to support the government’s initiative of building 111 hospitals across the country termed the ‘’Agenda 111 project’’.
He said he believed it will be one of the government’s biggest health infrastructure drives in the country’s recent history.
He appeared in an interview with Kwaku Aboagye Apenteng on Freedom Radio’s ‘’Yen Man’’ when he spoke on the sod-cutting to be done by President Nana Akufo-Addo.
He indicated that the government’s Agenda 111 is aimed at providing 111 district hospitals, seven new regional hospitals.
The project, he said, will also see the provision of two specialised hospitals, one for the middle belt and one for the southern belt. These are psychiatric hospitals and then redevelopment of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital,
He said it had been estimated that each of the 111 district hospitals would cost approximately $17 million and should be completed 12 months from the respective dates of commencement with a funding of $100 million from the government through the Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund (GIIF).
He said as of now, 88 sites, made up of 15-acre lands each, had been secured to facilitate the projects.
