DCE requests for more CHPS centres at Akyemansa
Akyem Ayirebi (E/R), July 23, GNA – Mr Tom Budu, Akyemansa District Chief Executive, has appealed to the District Health Directorate to open more Community-based Health Planning Services (CHPS) compounds in the district to make healthcare delivery more accessible to the people.
He said the district, with a population of about 61,000 people, has 93 communities with most of the areas difficult to reach and getting community health officers nearer to the people would ensure effective healthcare delivery.
Mr Budu said this att the Half Year Performance Review meeting of the District Health Directorate.
It was attended by health personnel from all the five sub-districts, representatives of the assembly, assembly members, volunteers, traditional authorities and other collaborators.
Mr Budu said the assembly had decided to reshape all roads leading to health facilities to make them more accessible and also ready to connect them to the national electricity grid.
The assembly would also register all physically challenged people free of charge under the District Mutual Health Insurance Scheme (DMHIS) and requested those affected to get in touch with his office for assistance.
