Minister of Health, Mr Alex Segbefia, at the weekend inaugurated an ultra modern Health Training Institutions Secretariat in Accra to coordinate all the activities of the training institutions.

The Secretariat would monitor, evaluate, and set up standards for enrolments to ensure that there is uniformity and equal standards in the activities of the nursing training institutions.

Speaking at the inauguration, Mr Segbefia indicated that the Ministry is moving away from the issue of giving student allowances to a student loan scheme.

He added the Secretariat would also regulate the number of complaints the Ministry receives.

The Minister expressed gratitude to the United Nations Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER), for donating two vehicles to the Secretariat to facilitate their work.

Mr Tony Goodman, Public Relations Officer of the Ministry of Health indicated that the Secretariat would check the requirement of students the nursing training institutions needs in the country.

He believed this would help reduce the burden on available nurses in the country.

Mr Goodman added the Secretariat would help Government to keep track of the number of nurses in the country in order to accumulate the appropriate budget for the nurses in terms of employment.

He said the Secretariat would monitor both private and public nursing institutions and would determine the number of students a private nursing institution can admit.

Mr Christopher Beyere, Executive Secretary of the Secretariat said the body would deal with issues of school fees, discipline and training in the institutions.

The Secretariat has offices such as Human Resource, Administration, Executive Secretary, Nursing and Midwifery, Allied Health, Conference room and a Dining Hall.
