Over 3000 nurses have left Ghana since 2020 for greener pastures – GHS

Poor working circumstances in Ghana have been mentioned by several medical experts who are leaving the nation in search of better opportunities overseas.

The Ghana Health Service stated that it has revised and doubled study leave for unprofessional nurses going back to 2021 in an effort to address the concerning concern.


It is anticipated that by the middle of the following year, the majority of these unprofessional nurses who took advantage of the opportunity would have been qualified to fill the void.

“Mr. Speaker, I think that we should look at the remuneration [of nurses]. If we look at the compensation, it was over and above what was allocated and if people have left, the compensation should then climb up. We should do a proper audit of the nurses who have left to know the deficit and should be able to employ to replace those who have exited.”

During a debate on the Health Ministry’s 2024 budget, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Majority Leader of Parliament, stated that in order to address the tendency, the government should think about increasing compensation.
