The lead advocate for the dialysis unit at the Upper East Regional Hospital, Dr. Emmanuel Akatibo, is hopeful that the centre will be completed and put to use by the end of the year. He made this statement during an interview with Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.

Dr. Akatibo explained that three additional machines had been donated by the Sankofa Organization following an earlier donation by the Asaase Foundation. Additionally, work on the building expected to house the centre is almost complete.

Dr. Akatibo, who also serves as the Head of Internal Medicine at the Upper East Regional Hospital, revealed that the medical doctor expected to run the facility is scheduled to receive training by October 1, 2023. Nurses who will assist the medical officer will follow suit shortly.

“I am happy to inform the entire Upper East Region that what we started together during the early part of the year is about to come to fruition. Last week, we received information from Sankofa, one organisation that is going to support us with three of the machines and the chairs that people will sit in when they want to undergo the process. Currently, the team is in Accra to pick up the machines. The building to host the facility is almost ready too. We are hoping to open the centre before the end of the year,” he said.

Dr. Akatibo continued to put in a passionate request for more machines explaining that if the facility is able to install many machines, then specific machines could be dedicated to provide services for people with viral infections like Hepatitis, and HIV. 

Additionally, more resources would be needed to purchase consumables and an ultrasound machines and other auxiliary machines.
