The MCE noted that the health of community members in the Municipality is a priority and thought it prudent and necessary to put up a health facility in almost every community to address their basic health needs.
Mr. Ofori expressed gratitude to the land owners, construction firm and community members for the completion of the project.
He urged the community members not to encroach on the land on which the facility was built, since there could be future upgrades of the CHPS Compound to a hospital.
Madam Gifty Asempa, Acting Municipal Health Director noted that the project is aimed at establishing sustainable systems for improving the community's health by involving individuals and households in planning and delivering health care adding that a staff would be posted to the facility and would facilitate the formation of the Community Health.
She said the facility would render services including Growth Monitoring and Promotion, family planning services, clinical (minor ailment treatment). Others include ANC outreach from CHPS compounds with midwife, home visit and emergency delivery, and School Health activities.
