The Paediatrics Specialty is helping to improve preventative and curative child healthcare in the UER, improve treatment of children with common illnesses and improve recognition and treatment of children who require emergency medical care. This is being done through training and capacity building as well as raising awareness of the Ghana Health Services Child Health Record through education and publicity campaigns. Paediatric nursing is a key focus of the Paediatrics Specialty with the capacity of paediatric nurses in the region being built to ensure that triaging of children on arrival to hospital is better managed and children receive a high standard of care.
