KCCR collaborate with Newmont Ghana limited to establish 2 new covid19 laboratories

August 25, 2021

The KCCR COVID19 testing team is collaborating with Newmont Ghana Limited by providing technical support for the set-up of two laboratories at New Abirim Hospital in the Eastern Region and Kenyase Health Centre in the Ahafo Region. Newmont Ghana purchased the needed equipment and supplies. These laboratories will be handed over to the Ghana Health Service to serve the health needs of the communities. Equipment purchased by Newmont Ghana is multiuser and should be of value in investigating other outbreak diseases such as influenza and meningitis alongside the COVID19 pandemic. The  KCCR team that helped in the set up include Morrah Oppong, Henry Kyeremateng Acheampong, Henrietta Dede Tetteh, Rachel Naa Yemotiokor Yemofio, Dr Augustina Sylverken and Michael Owusu. In all four (4) lab technicians were trained in New Abirim and ten (10) in Ahafo. These technicians have acquired skills to allow them to work independently
