The proposed University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) for the Volta Region is certain to takeoff in September this year, Professor Fred Binka, its first Vice Chancellor asserted in Ho on Monday.

He was addressing a well-attended public forum, organised under the auspices of the Volta Regional Coordinating Council.

At the forum reports of activities concerning the establishment of the University, including policy-blueprint, human resource searches and physical structure build-ups were presented.

“We are on the ground and ready to start work in September 2012, with the first intake of 200 students,” Prof Binka stressed.

He said the process of certifying programmes to be offered with the National Accreditation Board were about starting and that as soon as that clearance was given advertisements for applications for admissions would be put out in the media.

Prof Binka said the University Council was also in consultation with the relevant professional bodies for their input into course contents.

He said work on the permanent site would be developed as the University grew.

The UHAS was one of two public universities promised by President John Evans Atta Mills, the other being, University for Energy and Natural Resources, for the Brong Ahafo Region.
