As part of efforts to make health care delivery more sustainable and effective in Ghana, PharmAccess Group has launched the second phase of the Medical Credit Fund (MCF II), here in Ghana.

The MFC II, which is a €32.5m loan facility, is intended to reduce the challenges faced by small and medium-sized healthcare companies in accessing loans and other credit facilities to widen their operations and expand their outreach.

The launch of the MCF II was attended by stakeholders from the health sector. The Diocesan Bishop of the Catholic Church at Keta-Akatsi, Most Reverend Gabriel Edoe Kumordji, was among the list of dignitaries who graced the occasion.

Country Director of PharmAcces, Dr. Maxwell Antwi, together with the Managing Director of Medical Credit Fund, Mr. Arjan Poels, were also present at the event, and shared a few words with the audience on the objective of the Fund and how it seeks to better the fortunes of the private health sector in Ghana.

As part of the ceremony, a panel discussion was moderated by the Chief Executive Officer of the Healthcare Federation Ghana and Franklyn Medical Centre, Dr. Lynda Decker, to discuss the ‘Financing Healthcare Businesses in Ghana’.

The discussants included the President of the Pharmaceutical Society of Ghana, Pharm. Samuel Kow Donkoh; the Country Manager of GE Healthcare, Mr. Daniel Amo-Korankye and the Chief Executive Officer of Cross Care Hospital in Sunyani, Mrs. Evelyn Dzantor.
