Upper Manya Krobo residents clamour for nursing training college

Residents and key stakeholders in Asesewa, the capital of the Upper Manya Krobo District in Eastern Region are pleading with the Ministry of Health to grant them license to establish a nursing training college in the area.

The establishment of a nursing training institution in the district will be the first tertiary institution in the area to helpfully help produce health practitioners to care for patients and promote quality health delivery in the area.

The Asesewa Area Council had already written a letter to the Public Relations Officer at the Ministry of Health, Mr. Isaac Offei Baah, requesting support to help in the construction of the health institution.

According to the Council, inadequate health facilities in the district has endangered lives as CHPS compound, which was upgraded into a clinic lacks the needed infrastructure to function effectively.

The Chairman for Asesewa Area Council, Daniel Kwesi Tettey has, therefore, pleaded with the Ministry of Health to post qualified midwives and other health professionals to their health care centers in the district.

The council believes receiving a license to establish a nursing training college from the ministry will help address health challenges confronting the district and other neighboring communities.

In a related development, Daniel Kwesi Tettey has called for sponsorship from donors, philanthropists and institutions to help extend good and adequate drinking water to Asesewa township.

According to him, the water system which provides water for the people has not been upgraded for the past 20 years and that the inhabitants depend solely on boreholes, which are not even adequate.

Asesewa, which is the capital of the Upper Manya Krobo District has a population of over 25,000 of which 75% covers a distance of more than a 1km to look for water.
