At the hand over ceremony in Accra on Tuesday, China's ambassador to Ghana, Sun Baohong, said "We wish all these anti-malaria drugs will play a crucial role in treating the disease and saving people's lives in this country."

According to the ambassador, China has been donating anti-malaria drugs to Ghana since 2006 and has been supporting Ghana's health sector through construction of hospitals and personnel training.
 

Sun further expressed hope that the forthcoming forum on China-Africa cooperation in Johannesburg due in December will give the two sides a platform to strengthen their cooperation, particularly with healthcare.

Ghana's Health Minister, Alex Segbefia expressed gratitude to the Chinese government for their donation, adding that "It is a demonstration of the continuing relationship that we've had with China."
