For the first time in its 96 years of existence, the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital can boast of a paediatric and intensive care unit (PICU) which will give a big boost to childcare services in Ghana. The new unit has come courtesy of the Rebecca Foundation, led by First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

According to a study conducted by the World Bank, Ghana spends US$290 million annually fighting poor sanitation.
