The Tano South Municipal Assembly has commissioned the Asuboi and Adaa Community-Based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compounds.
At separate durbars to commission the two projects, Mr Arthur Kinsley, Disease Control Officer at the Municipal Health Directorate, described the commissioning of the compounds as historic for the residents of the two communities.
Mr. Arthur explained that one of the policies of the Ghana Health Service was to ensure that patients are able to seek medical attention whenever they move hundred metres away from their homes, the reason for which the health centres had been provided for the two communities by the Assembly.
He said the Health Directorate had collaborated with the Assembly to institute a committee to liaise with opinion leaders in the communities for the management of the CHPS compounds.
He urged the committee members to work hard to ensure they maintain the clinics to serve their intended purposes.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Tano South, Collins Offinam Takyi, said the Municipality had 21 CHPS zones, and the government, through Tano South Municipal Assembly, had been able to construct four CHPS compounds and handed over them to the communities.
He reiterated that the Asuboi and Adaa CHPS Compounds were furnished with the necessary equipment, including solar panels, and said currently, the Municipality can boost of seven operational CHPS compounds.
He hinted that the Assembly was working around the clock to provide more compounds
