Medical supply and logistic delivery company Zipline, has expanded its operations to the Anum and Kete-Krachi areas in the Volta, and Oti regions of the country.
Country Manager of Zipline, Naa Adorkor Yawson, stated that the opening of the two distribution centers in the Volta and Oti regions is in recognition of health industrialization plans by the government to see more health outposts benefit from government interventions.
“Three years ago, what began as a small initiative in the little town of Omenako to bring relief to the communities within that enclave, turned out to be a futuristic, Science-tech driven partnership, refined with solutions to addressing our major health concerns. For the first time, communities marginalized by geographical and infrastructure challenges have experienced first-hand instant access to medicines, stronger emergency and disaster response, reduction in referral rates and improved healthcare through this beautiful technology” Naa Adorkor Yawson said.
She further explained that the expanded business cooperation, supported by the government of Ghana, Ministry of Health, and allied partners, has witnessed “comprehensive and rapid development in the health sector”. In her assessment, apart from the home commendation of reducing the incidence of infant mortality through their vaccine distribution programme and the swift response to medical emergencies in remote areas, the company has also received international plaudits for its work in the African sub-region.
She indicated that with the two new distribution centers, about 70% of the Volta Region and 90% of the Oti Region will be reached with their services.
