The United Nations High Commision for Refugees has handed over a CRYOTHERAPY equpitment to the Ellembelle Health Directorate.

The ceremony which was held at the Ampain Camp Health Facility saw in attendance Representatives of the UNHCR,  Western Regional Health Directorate, the Ellembelle District Assembly and the Refugee Camp.

The provision of the  equipment is in line with UNHCR's support to national efforts on fighting against cervix cancer, through health system strenghening by training human resource on screening and early diagnosis and treatment.

The UNHCR Head of Field Office Mr Arjun Shrestha in a speech on behalf of the Country Representative on UNHCR in Ghana noted that it is their mandate to provide international protection for Persons of Concern(PoCs) and that includes health. "UNHCR, Ghana implements its health programs through partners.

In this kind of arrangement, UNHCR financially supports provision of healthcare services to PoCs same as when there was emergency and this practice perpetuated parallel programming and lacked sustainabilty".

Mr Arjun Shrestha noted that UNHCR contribution to national program on fighting against cervix cancer will be listed among efforts to support the on-going health integration of the Camp Health Facility to Ghana Health Service in Central and Western Regions.

It is important that Ghana Health Service make strategic use of such contribution in order to maximize the effort of staff trained to ensure PoCs and host Communities also benefit.
