ACCES TO HEALTH FACILITIES;
Accessibility of health facilities in the district is evenly distributed. However, few communities have problems accessing their health needs due to long distance coupled with the fact that some of the road are motorable, example are the people of Nsokote who find it difficult to access their health facilities at Aboabo health centre during the raining season. Also communities around Agogooso and Adokwai have to access their health facilities from Fomena but due to the long distance, they rather access health care at Amansie East a neibouring district.

Adansi North District being a newly created district, is yet to collect data on infant/maternal mortality rate. Information gathered from the health directorate indicates that infants and mothers are normally referred to hospitals outside the district, when their conditions are critical.
