Ghana: GHS Directs Muslim Nurses Be Allowed to Wear Hijab by katty : January 05, 2019, 11:53:31 AM
The Ghana Health Service has directed all public hospitals in the Greater Accra Region to allow Muslim nurses to wear Hijab after a student nurse was allegedly denied attachment at the Ridge Hospital for refusing to take off her Hijab.

In a letter to all Regional Health Directors, Medical Superintendents, Polyclinic In-Charges, Metro, Municipal and District Directors of Health Service in the region, the GHS said the move "contravenes government policy directive which gives approval to the wearing of Hijab."



"Kindly ensure strict adherence to this directive by all staff and managers concern," the statement concluded.

The GHS directive comes after a student nurse was refused work at the Ridge Hospital for not agreeing to remove her Hijab when her other colleagues had agreed to.

The development has sparked baseless claims of Islamophobia in Ghana on some social media platforms.

Activists on Twitter say the decision by the Ridge Hospital management to refuse the Muslim nurse work for not removing her Hijab amounts to Islamophobia.

"The number of people denying Islamophobia while describing instances of it really has me baffled. Is it that the word scares you or something?, a Twitter user said.
