6,000 Nurses Flee Ghana for Greener Pastures Abroad - Prez Perpetual Ofori-Ampofo

Perpetual Ofori-Ampofo, President of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA), unveiled a concerning trend: approximately 6,000 nurses have departed Ghana since August 2023 in pursuit of better opportunities abroad.

This mass exodus poses a significant challenge to the nation’s healthcare system.

Nurses cite various reasons for their departure, including the lure of higher salaries and improved working conditions in Western countries like the UK.
