“We cannot isolate one from the other. When we work together and ensure we bring to light corrupt practices that are affecting our health sector, our people will get better health care,” Kamara said.
Abubakarr Turay also said he has known Kamara for many years and respected him highly for his persistent efforts in promoting health issues in the media landscape in the country.
“We are very happy for this development and looking forward to a fruitful relationship,” he said.
Glennis Frazer said bringing the media closer to the works of the ACC is vital in stamping out corruption and why the ACC is reaching out to publication houses to build better relationships.
“I commend you for your exceptional work and urge you to continue what you are doing,” she reiterated.
