BCI and National Cancer Coalition in Raleigh, USA have since July 2009, signed a memorandum of understanding with the aim to have essential medicines from USA and Europe provided to Ghana, purposely for needy but poor patients.

Speaking at the presentation ceremony, Dr Mrs Beatrice Wiafe Addai, CEO of BCI, said the drugs are to be administered to needy patients receiving treatment at the beneficiary health facilities within Ghana for free.

She commended the donors and other collaborators who facilitated in the shipment and delivery of the drugs and urged the beneficiary health facilities to ensure that the drugs are given to patients at no cost to them.

Dr Addai also advised the beneficiary hospitals to keep proper records on the management of the drugs in order to be able to furnish the donors with the required data for future assistance.
