Dr. Nsiah Asare speaking as a guest speaker at the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG) 2018 Annual Conference on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 said the practice of posting them must be stopped to ensure a fair distribution of health workers across the country.

He said "The present bottlenecks in ensuring that all staffing of existing health facilities simply has to be tackled now, not tomorrow. I am urging your conference to come out pragmatic measures to address this long-standing challenge in the sector."
