The HIV/AIDS Network expresses concern: Government may not approve pharmaceutical products at Tema Port. Explore the potential implications. Read now.

By Friday, April 12, the Coalition of Civil Society Organisations in Health has doubted the government’s capacity to address the problem of delayed life-saving medications trapped at the port.Despite threats from the Global Fund to withhold supplies to Ghana if the delays at the ports are not handled, the Ministry of Health claims significant progress in clearing 182 of 435 containers containing antiretrovirals, TB, and malaria medications at the Tema Port.

Ernest Ortsin, the President of the Ghana HIV and AIDS Network, has expressed scepticism on the products’ timely clearance. He was talking during a Citi News interview.

“We welcome the intervention from the Ministry of Health, except that this is not the first time they are making such a promise to us.

“The difference this time is that the new acting Commissioner General of the Ghana Revenue Authority has also stepped into the matter, and she has indicated that she is going to collaborate with the ministry to ensure that they claim the commodities.

“That is what is new about this new

statement from the ministry. So, we are giving them the benefit of the doubt, hoping that by Friday, they will be able to claim all the commodities,” he said.
