Ghana has been chosen as the location for Germany’s West African Centre for Global Health and Pandemic Prevention.
This good news was shared by the German ambassador to Ghana, Christoph Retzlaff. He added that the Ghanaian centre is one of eighth others worldwide.
He tweeted; “Excellent news: Germany will support launch of a new “German-West African Center for Global Health and Pandemic Prevention.
It will be located in Ghana and be part of 8 new centers worldwide to fight global challenges.”
This comes days after Twitter announced that it has picked Ghana as the headquarters for its Africa operations. Recall that the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey on his official Twitter account, posted;
“Today, in line with our growth strategy, we’re excited to announce that we are now actively building a team in Ghana. To truly serve the public conversation, we must be more immersed in the rich and vibrant communities that drive the conversations taking place every day across the African continent.
As a champion for democracy, Ghana is a supporter of free speech, online freedom, and the Open Internet, of which Twitter is also an advocate. Furthermore, Ghana’s recent appointment to host The Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area aligns with our overarching goal to establish a presence in the region that will support our efforts to improve and tailor our service across Africa.”
🇬🇭 Twitter is now present on the continent.
