The Chief Executive Officer of the National Ambulance Service, Professor Ahmed Nuhu Zakariah, has received the Health Environment Safety and Security (HESS) award on Monday, July 03, 2023.

Having been the Chief Executive Officer of the National Ambulance Service of Ghana for over a decade, the recipient is credited with building a robust emergency service delivery system for Ghana.

Also, from about seven District offices at the inception of the National Ambulance Service, the institution now has almost 300 stations with all districts in Ghana hosting offices.
Presenting the award to Prof. Zakariah, the leadership of HESS, called on him to continue to do his best amidst the daunting challenges to take Ghana to higher heights.
