The vice president of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Dr. Alhaji Bawumia,has  launched a scholarship scheme that will see postgraduate medical education become free in Ghana.

In a ceremony held yesterday, the vice president indicated that, a total amount of GH₵ 6,885,800 (six million eight hundred and eighty-five thousand) Ghana Cedis has been disbursed to the college as an attempt to offset half of its GH₵ 11,000,000 (eleven million) Ghana Cedis projected budget for the year.

The scheme will see the school fees of 918 residents and senior residents who are currently enrolled in the 2019/2020 academic year fully covered under the Ghana Scholarships Secretariat.

The vice president in his speech stated that his government is committed to the health of Ghanaians and will do everything possible to assure all citizens of accessible, affordable, and available health service delivery. He further emphasized his government’s quest to continually invest in all aspects of the health system, in both physical infrastructure and soft infrastructure by leveraging on technology.

It would be recalled that one of the many free things the Nana Addo government promised during their campaign to the 2016 elections included making postgraduate medical education free in the country.
