This according to the Bosome Freho District Director of Health Services, Mr Clement Nti-Boateng, was  as a result of pragmatic measures put in place by the DHMT as well as dedication and hard work by the staff of the health facilities in the district.

He mentioned some of the measures put in place as embarking on  a community durbar, visits to churches and mosque, to sensitisepeople to family planning and the interaction with students in primary, junior high and senior high schools in the area.

Speaking to the Daily Graphic at Asiwa, the District capital, he commended the faith-based institutions like churches, mosques and other social groups for their support which had led to the attainment of such a feat.

The District Director said to ensure that every community in the district benefitted from family planning services, all health personnel had been trained on how to interact and render family planning services to their clients in all the five sub-districts and the nine Community-Based Health Planning Services (CHPS) compounds.

Among the initiatives put in place to ensure quality health care delivery in the area were the training of 89 Community-Based Surveillance Volunteers (CBSV) in all the 89 communities in the district to ensure that they assist in health care by reporting to health facilities incidents of health problems in the communities.
