    Ghana holds third bi-annual national program review

    About 80 persons participated in the national review of Ghana's Guinea Worm Eradication Program (GWEP), which met at the Miklin Hotel in Accra on September 6- 7. This was the third national review held at six monthly intervals, following the previous reviews held at Tamale, Northern Region in September 2000, and at Ho, Volta Region in March 2001. The Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, the Honorable Mr. Kwado B. Wiredu, chaired the opening ceremony of the Accra meeting, which also was addressed by the Minister of Health, the Honorable Professor Richard Anane; the Deputy Minister of Works and Housing, the Honorable Ms Theresa Tagoe; and the Deputy Minister of Health, the Honorable Dr. Moses D. Baah. The minister of local government and rural development said his ministry will urge local District Assemblies in endemic districts to prioritize support for eradication measures. The representative of the ministry of works and housing indicated that Guinea worm eradication is also a priority of his ministry under the new administration. The minister of health said Guinea worm eradication is a major concern to the government, and he appealed to Ghana's development partners for assistance, especially for helping to provide sources of safe drinking water in endemic areas.
