AKUFO-ADDO SECURES JOB FOR 375 GHANAIAN NURSES IN BARBADOS


President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has agreed to a request by the Prime Minister

of Barbados, Mia Amor Mottley, to send some 375 Ghanaian nurses to Barbados to work in a

number of their government medical facilities. This came to the fore when President Akufo-Addo

and Prime Minister Mottley held bilateral talks on Friday, 14th June 2019, in Bridgetown, Barbados,

after the Ghanaian leader paid a day’s working visit to that country.

Addressing a press conference in the aftermath of the bilateral discussions, and with Barbados facing

an acute nursing shortage, the Barbadian Prime Minister stated that “we have indicated that

we are searching for just under 400 nurses, so it is not a small number, and we really do believe

that this is a wonderful opportunity of co-operation between our two countries.”

In addition, she noted that there was also an initial promise to secure the nurses and provide joint education

programmes going forward, all in an attempt to secure Barbados’ healthcare sector.
