The visiting team was received by the Director of the SDA Hospital in Tamale – Ekao Amouzou, on Wednesday 4th March 2020 at his office. The purpose of the visit was to obtain at first hand, progressive changes that have emanated from the implementation of the CALID’s `Fighting Unapproved Charges for Health Services` project funded by STAR Ghana Foundation.

The Project initially had a special focus on 3 health facilities in the Tamale Metropolis: Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH), Tamale Central Hospital, and the Tamale West Hospitals. The SDA Hospital was later added in September 2019 to expand the project scope and replicate results and learning from the other hospitals.

 

The implementation of the project has succeeded in empowering citizens of the Tamale Metropolis on their rights as clients of the various hospitals. The project has also facilitated the creation of reporting platforms and channels including a mobile short messaging system (SMS) platform for citizens to report corrupt acts of hospital staff. A case in point is the creation of a customer relations desk at the Tamale Teaching Hospital to respond to customer complaints.
