I’m satisfied with Agenda 111 project in Dormaa Central -Bono Minister

The Bono Regional Minister, Justina Owusu Banahene, has expressed satisfaction with progress of work on the Agenda 111 Hospital project at Amasu in Dormaa Central of the Bono Region.

She has, however, charged the contractors on the projects to speed up work to ensure their completion on schedule.

Justina Owusu Banahene said the difficulty in accessing timely and quality healthcare services by many communities in the area informed the decision of the government to embark on the project.

Justina Owusu Banahene said this at Amasu in Dormaa Central during her visit to the district to inspect progress of work.

She was elated that the three projects in the region were still alive despite the prevailing economic situation of the country.

She said the projects would provide a clear policy direction to the government in the health sector and ensure access to quality healthcare without funding being a barrier to any citizen.

According to her, Agenda 111 projects were one of the many policies that “we have to appreciate fundamentally. It is really a bold initiative by the government because the government is saying that every district should have a hospital; that is the vision.”

Agenda 111 is part of a massive vision for Ghana’s healthcare sector, the realisation of which would lead to Ghana becoming a Centre of Medical Excellence.

The objective of the Agenda 111 project, as envisioned by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is to ensure that Ghanaians in every district and region in the country had access to quality healthcare services.

The proposed project would boost the provision of healthcare infrastructure in line with the government’s commitment to ensuring universal health care to all citizens.

At the site, the Minister encouraged the workers and the contractor to work with diligence and not to hesitate to report all challenges relating to their work to the Assembly for urgent assistance.

On his part, the Project Manager of CYMAIN Limited, the construction company for the Amasu Agenda 111 project, Daniel Lamptey, gave an assurance the project would be completed on time and a standardised facility.
