Ghana gets ultramodern cancer centre - 27th June 2012
Vice President - John Dramani Mahama

Persons suffering from cancer across the West African Sub region can now seek treatment Accra, Ghana.

The Sweden Ghana Medical Centre which was inaugurated on Wednesday is fully equipped with ultramodern medical equipment to assist in the treatment of all kinds of cancers.

According to Vice President John Dramani Mahama, the facility will help the entire sub region especially, Ghanaians to seek affordable cancer treatment right here in the country.

He pointed out that people resort to seeking specialized cancer care outside the country due to the inability of the public hospitals in Ghana to treat some forms of cancers.

He expressed the hope that "this ultramodern facility that has the latest state of the art equipment, will no longer make it necessary for people to bear the high cost of travelling to Europe or South Africa to receive cancer treatment."

Former President John Agyekum Kufuor graced the ceremony as he cut the sod for the project four years ago.
