Medical Doctors working at Dormaa-Ahenkro in the Dormaa Central Municipality of the

Brong-Ahafo Region have refused to join the industrial strike by the public sector Doctors of

the Ghana Medical Association


The Doctors did not join their public sector colleagues to withdraw emergency and Out-

Patient Department (OPD) services, since they operate under the Christian Health Association of

Ghana (CHAG) and Society of Private, Medical and Dental Practitioners (SPMDPs).

When the Ghana News Agency (GNA), visited some health facilities in the Municipality on

Wednesday, doctors, nurses and other para-medics were all at post, busily attending to patients.

At the Dormaa Presbyterian Hospital, Dr. Dery Zapklah Emmanuel, Acting Medical

Superintendent said doctors at the Hospital had not withdrawn their services because they

were working as members of CHAG, despite that CHAG is a member of GMA, he added.

Dr Michael Sefa, Medical Officer in-charge of Ohenewa Memorial Clinic, stated that medical

practitioners in that facility belonged to the SPMDPs, but added, however, that

they decided not to join the GMA because his hospital is a private entity.
