Management of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in the Ashanti region has announced the constitution of a five-member committee to investigate allegations of the sale of contaminated blood by the facility.
One Addo-Kwabla Evans, in a Facebook post, accused the hospital of selling two units of HIV-Syphilis infested blood to his mum.
He claimed the blood units were administered at the Kean Health Center, a private medical center in Kumasi.
But KATH Saturday raised doubts about the veracity of the reports saying, “KATH has a track record of stringent blood testing protocols and maintains the highest standard for blood safety”.
However, the hospital has set up a committee comprising representatives from the Ghana Police Service, the Food and Drugs Authority, the National AIDS control programme and the National Public Health Reference Lab to investigate the matter.
Attached is the full statement.
