President John Dramani Mahama has emphasized the need for efficient investment in the health sector in order to ensure that primary health care is enhanced and sustained in developing countries.
He made the comment at the UN general assembly which was jointly hosted by him, the German Chancellor and the Norwegian Prime Minister.
Barely 24 hours after the UN adopted the sustainable development goals the three governments who are jointly spearheading the idea hosted a forum to consolidate their efforts.
President Mahama believes a well controlled investment by governments in the health sector would ensure efficient primary health care delivery.
“On the question of building resilient health systems, I believe that one is for us to continue to invest both at the national level and the international level and also to invest not in terms of the quantity of funds that we are putting in but how we can make every single dollar that we are putting in more efficiently used than what we are doing currently.”
