The Ghana Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists (GAMLS) is threatening to strike if the Ministry of Health (MoH) does not make available to them Prof. Aryeetey committee report on Health Policy.
Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Association, Dennis Adu-Gyasi says the report by the committee has been ready since last year and a copy made available to the Health Minister since February of 2017, but the Ministry has refused to make available the report to the GAMLS.
In August last year, the association went on strike when the MoH refused to implement the National Health Laboratory policy document that had already been signed by the then Health Minister Sherry Ayittey.
But Former Health Minister, Alex Segbefiah had pleaded with the GAMLS to call off the strike and set up a three-member committee to look into the report and make recommendations that can be accepted and the policy implemented.
But months after the Prof Aryeetey’s committee report had been handed over to MoH, the association has not been given a copy.
The association wants MoH to make available the results by Wednesday or they will resume their strike action that they put on hold to make way for the committee to look at the policy.
