112 is also the pan-European emergency number, and in many other countries, worldwide.  
GhanaWeb-News.com ::::: Opinion: 

112 - The Number. It is a number of emergency! 112 is also the number of dead Ghanaians, to be exactly; women. They are not just women (or babies); But mothers, children, daughters, sisters, a wife, a girlfriend, a friend. It`s shocking! And it is an OFFICIAL Number! 

Women die over lack of midwife in the Northern region - That`s a headline, by Ultimate FM, 12. Nov 2016

More women are dying and others suffering complications in the Mamprugu-Moagduri District of the Northern region following the absence of a trained midwife and a significant shortfall of healthcare providers in the lone impoverished clinic serving over 40 communities....
Regional health director Naa Jacob Mahama, during the President’s visit at the Kumbungu palace, said about 112 maternal mortality cases were recorded this year. Official number. 112.
Whiles Ghana records at least 350 maternal deaths, United Kingdom is 9.02, per 100.000!
  • The clinic built in 2005 - There is no midwife and with only three (3) staff including the district health director.
  • There is no doctor compelling pregnant women, from distance areas including Sandema in the Upper East region.
  • There are no vehicles in the area largely due to bad road networks and as a result labour patients are carried on motorbikes and in bucket of tractors to Sandema to have babies.

Whiles Ghana records at least 350 maternal deaths, UK is 9.02, per 100.000! 

A single hospital - 112 deaths alone, within just 10 month's! ! See here the general figures from Ghana: In the period 2007-12 Ghana had a reported maternal mortality ratio of 450 deaths per 100,000 live births (this figure was estimated at 350 deaths per 100,000 by UN agencies/World Bank in 2010). As Ghana's maternal mortality rate is three times higher than the given target, it is unlikely to achieve MDG 5 by 2015

UK: In the triennium 2011-2013, 214 women in the UK died directly or indirectly related to pregnancy. The overall mortality rate was 9.02 per 100,000 maternities which is a decline from 2010-2012, although this only reaches statistical significance for direct maternal deaths.

112 - The Number. It is a number of emergency! So, why is that number not getting trough, to an responsible government? Not alarming enough?

At the same time; Nurses are not being paid. Training allowances have been cut. There are plenty of unemployed nurses, all over the country. 
That`s Health Care in Ghana - 2016. 2016, an other number, yet to remember.
