There is no hospital in the District but it has five (5) health centers headed by qualified medical assistants located at Brenase, Ayirebi, Abenase, Anyinase and Adjobue. Plans are in place to upgrade one of them to district hospital status. The Catholic Church also runs a health centre at Ofoase. Because there is no major health facility in the District cases which require the attention of a medical doctor are referred to Dda and Nkawkaw Government hospitals as an extra cost.
Accessing health service in the district is difficult especially for the remote communities. To help prevent the up surge of diseases, community based health and planning centers can be found in the semi-urban towns to administer primary health care and first aid services. These centres are supported by health care volunteers.
The National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) is operating well in the District and the awareness it has created has helped reduce cost of health service delivery in the district.
