Work on a healthcare facility for the people of Asitey in Lower Manya Krobo is progressing steadily.
The clinic is being funded by Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi with his share of the Members of Parliament (MP) Common Fund, with support from his personal initiatives.
The facility, which is being fully funded by Ebenezer Terlabi Okletey, MP for the Lower Manya Krobo Constituency, is intended to provide quality healthcare to the Asitey community, which is disadvantaged by its location from major health facilities in the constituency.
The project begun barely two months ago, and scheduled for completion in four month, is already at lentil level.
The project, when completed, would boast of a Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound, a theatre, consulting rooms, out-patients-department (OPD), maternity and labour wards, a three-bedroom flat, and a mechanised borehole, which is being constructed by AB-Ziko Company Limited at a cost of over GH¢500,000.
The facility, upon completion, will also be designed to deliver healthcare services to the doorsteps of the community, which has had to endure inconveniences due to the absence of a reliable clinic.
Efforts to bring the facility to the people of Asitey falls in line with the policy of the Ghana Health Service to provide quality, affordable and reliable healthcare services to the various communities, as part of the its vision to reduce morbidity and mortality among the people.
