Almost 6 out of 10 health workers have experienced depression due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
This is according to a nationwide study of the mental health and psychological wellbeing of nurses and midwives since the outcome of the pandemic in Ghana.
The researchers collected data from two waves of online surveys of frontline health workers. A total of 508 nurses and midwives completed the first wave of the survey between July and August 2020.
When they were re-invited for a follow-up survey between November 2020 and March 2021, 283 responded.
