The Damongo Health Assistant Clinical Training School has held its first matriculation ceremony at Damongo in the West Gonja District of the Northern Region under the theme “quality health care delivery the role of the health assistant clinical”.

The Principal of the school, Mr. Cosmos H. Alhassan said the school admitted its first batch of 64 students consisting of 40 ladies and 21 Gentlemen in November 2006.

Currently the school has a total enrolment of 172 out which 99 are female with 65 males. The first batch according to the principal started training at the regional health directorate training center in Tamale and finally moved to Damongo last year.

Mr. Cosmos stated that the absence of library facilities, computer laboratory as well as inadequate hostel facilities and accommodation for staff is hampering smooth academic work.

He then appealed to Ghana Health Service to as a matter of urgency post more staff to the school as the present staff strength, stands at three including the principal.

The District Chief Executive for West Gonja District, Hon. Janet Jambia Alhassan said the District Assembly had over the years shown a lot of commitment to ensure access of the people to health facilities.

This, she said, is done by constructing additional clinic in Damongo and six CHPS compounds in other communities in the district. Hon. Jambia noted in addition that the District Assembly has been sponsoring nursing trainees and other tertiary students to augment the human resource base of the district and commended the tutors of the school for their commitment and dedication to duty.

Hon. Jambia stated that the nation’s dream to achieve the MDG 4 and 5 would be a mirage if attention is not paid to the development of human resource to manage the health sector.

She then called on the Health Assistants Trainees to be loyal to their teachers and work hard to pass their examinations so as to justify their stay in the school.

The Northern Regional Minister, Alhaji Mustapha Ali Idris urged the students to let the core values of the nursing profession be their guide. This he enumerates as team work, confidentiality, professionalism, people centred service among others

Hon. Alhaji Mustapha Ali Idris promised the school two sets of Jersey, two foot ball, a colour TV set and a motor bike.
