Professor Kwasi Obiri-Danso, Vice-Chancellor of the University, said it was part of the effort to build the capacity of community health professionals for efficient job performance.He was speaking at a graduation ceremony held for students of the university’s affiliated nursing, midwifery and community health training institutions, in Kumasi.

Prof Obiri-Danso said the number of healthcare professionals in every nation was reflective of the health of that nation.He indicated that through partnership with Ramapo College in the United States (US), it had worked to enhance advanced learning in nursing, culminating in the introduction of a Master of Science (MSc) Programme in Nursing.

In line with this, its College of Health Sciences would mount a programme in professional education at the pre-service training to develop the culture and build the capacity of health personnel in team work.

It would do this with assistance from the MoH to achieve quality healthcare and reduce the incidence of maternal and infant mortality, communicable diseases and infections.
