Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Monday September 14, held a virtual interaction with Microsoft founder, Bill Gates on Ghana’s progress on immunisation against the new circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus type 2 (cVDPV2).
The discussion according to Dr Bawumia also centred around the lessons from Ghana’s policy response to COVID-19 and the country’s digitisation strategy.
“It was a good exchange of views and he congratulated Ghana for the strides we have made on several fronts. I also thanked him and the Gates Foundation for their successful work in the fight against polio and other diseases,” the Vice President shared via Facebook.
Ghana had been polio-free for over a decade until recently where some few cases have been recorded.
