Tamale Hospital
Government has decided to foot the medical bills of Dr. David Abdulai , a medical doctor battling with thyroid cancer.

Dr. David Abdulai has over the years dedicated his life to serving the poor in the Northern Region.

He runs 2 free health clinics in the region and serves a variety of populations including the mentally ill, HIV positive, homeless, etc.


In May, Dr Abdulai was diagnosed with stage-4 thyroid cancer which is reportedly quite aggressive and spreading.

Reports indicated that the doctor was in dire need of radiation therapy, which is not offered in Tamale where he resides.

But a post from the Minister of Health on Wednesday indicated that “the President directed the Ghana Air Force to evacuate Dr Abdulai to Accra three days ago, so he can receive optimal care.”

“He was flown to Accra yesterday and is currently receiving the care he needs. In my humble opinion, even though the President has intervened, the fund-raising efforts are in the right direction, and proceeds will surely be appreciated by Dr Abdulai…,”the Minister added.

Below is the post from the Minister of Health

Thanks to Pakwo Shum, Kobby Blay, Nana Awere Damoah, Nana Ama Agyeman Asante, Ama Opoku-Agyemang and others for the posts and fund-raising efforts on behalf of Dr David Abdulai of Shekhina Clinic in Tamale.

I’d like to share some information, if I may. H.E. the President directed the Ghana Air Force to evacuate Dr Abdulai to Accra three days ago, so he can receive optimal care.

He was flown to Accra yesterday and is currently receiving the care he needs. In my humble opinion, even though the President has intervened, the fund-raising efforts are in the right direction, and proceeds will surely be appreciated by Dr Abdulai. I will keep you all updated. Thank you.
