We lack infrastructure for E-Pharmacy – Health Expert tells Bawumia

A Health Expert, Samuel Arthur, says Ghana lacks the infrastructure to properly implement Vice President Bawumia’s promise for a National Scale E-Pharmacy.

He says the country currently has poor internet connectivity, the non-availability of drugs coupled with other essential systems that make Ghana lack the capacity for a National Scale E-Pharmacy project to be rolled-out successfully.

“Ghana lacks the structures we need on the ground to ensure that we are able to deliver health services to the people including dispensing drugs. Structures like how many pharmacies…that have all essential drugs that people need once they go to the facility,” he stated on Accra-based Starr FM’s Midday News.

He added that government must also focus on putting in good shape the health facilities across the country.

His comment comes on the back of Vice President Bawumia’s public lecture at Ashesi University yesterday, dubbed: “Using Digitalisation to Transform an Economy – The Ghana Story.”
