The International Health and Development Network, (IHDN) Mission Hospital, has launched its 10th-anniversary celebration to commemorate the successes chalked over the years.
The anniversary dubbed: “Ten years of improving the Health of the Community through Primary Health Care” is aimed at improving the health needs of the underprivileged in remote areas and grow primary health care delivery.
The event would be climaxed with a grand durbar on July 28th at the Ihdn Mission Hospital, Weta-Adzadokpo in the Ketu North Municipality of the Volta Region.
Activities lined up for the anniversary include, fundraising ceremony to acquire a 70,000 dollars digital X-ray machine, commission a five-storey staff apartment and cutting of sod for the construction of a Radiology Unit.
The IHDN is an International NGO championing primary health care delivery in poor communities in Agbozume and its environs since 1996 by a group of Christians led by Dr Edem Agamah, a Ghanaian born Haematologist/Oncologist in USA.
The Network, which has its affiliates in the USA sought to develop sustainable primary health care programmes in small towns and villages in developing countries, using the “Earthly Health Care Ministry of Jesus Christ”, as the module.
In a speech read on his behalf, Dr Agamah, who is also the President of the Ihdn Mission Hospital, said the group was formed in the USA in 1996 and a branch was established in Ghana and registered as an NGO in the same year.
He said they started from a humble beginning under a mango tree and later opened a clinic called IHND Family Health Clinic in their living room at Agbozume and as at 2002, with the help of volunteers from America; the clinic was able to treat over 5,000 patients each year.
