The Ministry of Health (MOH) has directed all public health testing laboratories to offer free COVID-19 testing for persons in Ghana.
This comes on the back of concerns raised on Covid-19 testing fees in Ghana.
The MOH did not state when the free services will begin. The directive was announced in a statement signed by the Acting Director, Kwabena Boadu Oku-Afari.
“All other walk-in requests such as ill-health, contact tracing, and exposure must be done free-of-charge using public health resources,” the statement urged.
However, the statement noted travellers, who will undergo the test, will pay for the service.
