The president of the Coalition, Solomon Yeboah said the recruitment follows series of protests members held at the Ministry of Health over their unemployment.

“Upon our agitation for financial clearance and going to sleep at the ministry, the ministry listened to our cries.”

“Most of our members have resumed work, some are also on course processing their documents to start work from next week. Everybody has been allocated to his or her agency,” he told Accra-based Citi FM.

He added that some of the members are at the “Ghana Health Service, Mental Health Authority and the Christian Health Association of Ghana,” adding that “everyone has started work and some of the agencies have called on their members to undergo medical screening and from there, they would be given their appointment letters.”

It will be recalled that a group of unemployed health professionals staged a protest at the Ministry of Health earlier this year to demand immediate employment.
