The two hospitals shared their innovation with all participants As summed up by Mr Etom from Ghana; “Very amazing place. The staff are great . The level of teamwork is very impressive. The innovation by staff in the various units and their ability to adapt and customize to the setting and work area is worth emulating by all.”
