The Maternity Block of the Tema General Hospital recorded 41 maternal in 2015, Head of Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of the Hospital, Dr. Sylvia Deganus, has said.

"We have been very concerned about this figure. Some were even brought in dead. Last year, we had a seminar for men and women of God, spiritually and tried to educate them on what some of the challenges are. Some are due to the space constraints, where women wait for long hours before theatre services are provided," she told GBC News.

Dr. Sylvia Deganus made this known after a presentation of medical equipment to the Maternity Block of the Hospital in Tema.

Amongst the items donated were resuscitators, drip stands, wheel chairs, professional patient trolleys, and autoclave.

The donation of medical equipment worth 48 thousand dollars was by C2YA International, an NGO in collaboration with the Ghana International Bank in UK and RAHA Medical Supply Limited.

The Tema General Hospital has been used as a major hospital and a referral centre in the Tema region.
However, with increased population, more pressure is being placed on facilities at the hospital.

Dr. Sylvia Deganus said the facility is hoping to acquire new wards and "where there are skills gap, we will do training for our personnel."
