GHANA President, Nana Akufo-Addo has extended the incentive packages for health workers in the fight against Covid-19 in the country by three months.
Akufo-Addo first announced the incentive packages in April during his 5th address.
“Whilst we appreciate the efforts of our health workers, I continue to urge them to remain professional and compassionate,” the president said in his 13th address to the nation on the management of Covid-19.
The earliest date for the end of the tax waivers for all health workers and an additional 50 per cent of basic salary per month for frontline health workers is now September 30.
“All frontline health workers, as defined by the Health Ministry, will continue to receive the additional allowance of 50 per cent of their basic salary per month, i.e. for July, August and September.
“I should reiterate that the insurance package for health workers is still in place,” he said in the televised address Sunday evening.
