There is a shortage of drugs in the infirmary of Koforidua Prison affecting the delivery of medical care and treatment services to the inmates.
This was made known when the Medical Team of Pentecost International Worship Center (PIWC)-Koforidua, visited the Prison to provide health screening services to the inmates.
The medical team donated few drugs available to stock the infirmary on the plea of the Prison officers.
Elder Frederick Darfur, a Pharmacist and Presiding Elder of PIWC -Koforidua who led the medical team said the situation is worrying given that most of the inmates reported cases of various skin rashes.
He said the overcrowded condition at the Prison is a serious health concern hence said the initiative of the church of Pentecost building Modern Prison facilities in parts of the country is therefore timely.
