Every story has a beginning. This is ours…
HAN has established the Health Access Institute (HAI) to help solve this critical shortage of health workers and also to pay attention to the health management and support workers group.
Prior to the establishment of HAI, HAN had engaged in extensive discussions and activities on training since (2007). These discussions led to the training of health professionals within the mission sector of Ghana Health system with support and collaboration from World Health Organisation (WHO) the Ghana country office, the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG) and the National Catholic Health Service (NCHS). The training programmes later translated into annual Technical Exchange Meetings (TEMS) (from 2010) among health professional and relevant state agencies for cross fertilisation of ideas and information dissemination.
The focus of the training as detailed in the business plan of Health Access Network (HAN) in 2007 was re-evaluated in 2012 which started the first year of planning for the establishment of HAI. There has also been the evolvement of the educational plan from a three–tier level of education, namely Pre-Tertiary; Complementary Internship and Continuous Professional Development to Tertiary training programmes beginning with the Pharmacy Technician training which HAI’s current focus is.
