Hanna Louisa Bisiw
Deputy Minister


HANNA LOUISA BISIW, was trained as a Veterinary Doctor at the Agrarian University of Havana, Cuba thus achieving her life-long dream. Today, apart from her passion for the animal health-care, she is also an astute female politician and a Minister of State. Currently she is the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Party’s Member of Parliament for the Tano South Constituency upon winning the December 2012 General Elections, having contested and won the parliamentary primaries in a landslide victory.

She was Born in Techimantia, a farming community in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana, on the 23rd of July, 1972, she is a Christian Married with two , she speaks English, Spanish ,Akan, Ga and understands Portuguese. She was bred in a culture which had little prospects for girl-child education. Young Hanna grew up in a humble family-home and like her peers, engaged in farming, fetched water from a distant river for domestic use and did other household chores as washing clothes and dishes, sweeping and throwing rubbish away, cooking as well as selling farm produce and “KOOBI” (salted fish) to supplement family income. Trekking daily to and from school at a nearby village through a lonely bush path carrying on the head her table and chair, little Hanna embraced the situation with pride and excitement. Growing up was without Television or Radio and her evenings were spent doing the homework and learning with her peers with “BOBO” lamp, a lantern and sometimes under the moonlight while baby-sitting a younger sibling. Throughout her Primary school to the Junior Secondary school, Hanna excelled in her examinations with distinction.

As destiny would have us believe, Hanna at the tender age of 13years of age, had a rare opportunity of earning a Government of Ghana scholarship which enabled her to continue her education in Cuba in 1986 where she graduated as a veterinary Doctor in 1999.

Motivated by her love for her country and passion for service to humanity, Hanna desired to return to Ghana upon earning a Degree, with the view to placing her services for the benefit of mother Ghana. Upon her return, Dr. Hanna Louisa Bisiw worked meritoriously with various Veterinary hospitals, fish processing Companies, facilitator for Government project Of Malaria Vector Control collaborative project between Governments of Ghana and Cuba all of these in Ghana until her calling into the ranks of Ghanaian politics became irresistible…
