The government of Ghana and its Health Ministry have demonstrated zero care and concern after the health training application portal went down for more than a week.
On May 6, 2023, the Ministry of Health announced via a press release that the official admission portal for Public Health Training Institutions for the 2023/2024 academic year is open.
The press statement signed by the Ministry of Health’s Chief Director, Alhaji Hafiz Adam, said applicants interested in Public Health could access the portal and follow instructions to apply.

However, the portal has not been working for more than a week now. Personal investigations by iGhanaian.com prove that the portal’s servers have been down for a period of time.
Furthermore, Ghanaians have prompted the ministry via social media but it appears the ministry is unconcerned about the issues facing applicants.
“The website on the voucher is not accessible, @mohgovgh please check that for new applicants,” Twitter user @Godofdbee2 said.
“Most our us have been trying to get the forms filled out but the HTI application portal wouldn’t open ……. Please check it out and give us an update,” another user @launcesir45 said.
This has been a frequent occurrence with the ministry but the government of Ghana and the Minister of Health, Kwaku Agyeman-Manu, have been adamant to fix these issues.
