According to the majority in parliament, by mid-year, the administration will put the first 50 of the Agenda 111 hospitals into operation.

President Akufo-Addo launched the program on August 17, 2021, with the goal of building 111 district hospitals nationwide to increase access to healthcare.

During his discussion on the 2024 budget, Patrick Boakye Yiadom, the deputy chairman of the parliament’s health committee, stated that the medical facilities will operate around the clock once they were put into service.

“Mr. Speaker, by the middle of next year, I am not bragging; we will commission the first 50 of these Agenda 111 hospitals.”

“Mr. Speaker, when the hospitals are completed, not only will they provide jobs for thousands of doctors, nurses, and others, but they will also open up businesses in the districts. The hospitals will run 24-hour services,” he stated.

101 district hospitals, six regional hospitals in the recently formed regions, two specialized hospitals in the middle and northern belts, a regional hospital in the Western Region, and the reconstruction of the Effia-Nkwanta Regional Hospital are all part of the Agenda 111 project.

The government stated that the initiative’s goals were to greatly expand the provision of high-quality healthcare at the district level and increase everyone’s access to healthcare services in order to guarantee the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal Three of the UN.

On Tuesday, August 17, President Akufo-Addo introduced the Agenda 111 initiative.

The goal of the project is to guarantee that all Ghanaians, regardless of location, have access to high-quality medical treatment. It also aims to enhance the availability of healthcare infrastructure and financial accessibility to healthcare through the National Health Insurance Scheme.
