The Executive Board and membership of the Ghana Physicians and Surgeons Foundation (GPSF) of North America has congratulated Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on assuming office as the Fifth President of the Fourth Republic of Ghana.

A statement issued by the Board and copied to the Ghana News Agency said the GPSF was confident that President Akufo-Addo, by attaining the highest office of the land, would usher in an era of significant positive turnaround of the current state of healthcare delivery in Ghana.

“We are very hopeful and trust that you will appoint a knowledgeable and capable leadership in the healthcare sector who will work tirelessly to make healthcare accessible to Ghanaians from all walks of life and ultimately achieve the UN goal of Universal Health Coverage for all Ghanaians,” it said.

The statement affirmed that the entire membership of the GPSF is committed to the vision of the President’s Administration with regard to healthcare and looked forward to contributing to his success.
