The Ghana Health Service (GHS) has confirmed the receipt and distribution of medications previously stuck at the port. Director General Dr. Patrick Kumah-Aboagye stated that the drugs are now being sent to areas experiencing shortages.

The Country Coordinating Mechanism for the Global Fund in Ghana reported that almost all commodities locked at the port had been cleared. Checks at the Central Medical Stores confirmed this, but it was unclear if health facilities had received the supplies.

Dr. Kumah-Aboagye assured that the medications have been distributed to the affected areas. He highlighted the use of an electronic delivery system and trucks to ensure timely delivery and address shortages.

Health Minister Dr. Okoe Boye confirmed that all essential medications, including TB and malaria drugs, have been cleared. However, new containers with mosquito nets have been discovered and are pending clearance.

The Minister assured that processes between the Ministry and the GRA have been streamlined to prevent future delays. The cleared commodities are for managing HIV, TB, and malaria in the country.
