Kotoso (E/R), Aug 21, GNA – Ms Vida Efua
Afful, the Kwahu East District Director of Health Services has called on
government, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), Corporate bodies and
philanthropists to support them to deliver on their mandate.

Speaking at the mid- year performance review
meeting held at Kotoso in the Kwahu East District, she mentioned vehicles,
staff accommodation and inadequate staff especially midwives as their major
challenges that hindered quality healthcare delivery in the area.

In spite of all the difficulties, she said the
directorate was able to distribute insecticide nets to community members,
organised free health screening for Senior High Schools in the district,
introduced Maternal Child Health (MCH) Promoters and activated polio vaccines
among others.

All the interventions, Ms Afful explained saw
a massive success since her outfit was able to reach their expected target
and  hinted that the directorate since
the beginning of the year had not received reimbursement of funds from the
National Health Insurance Authorities (NHIA) was affecting them.

Ms Afful said the directorate had plans of
creating more adolescents corners and clubs and to engage the youth in
activities to help reduce adolescent pregnancy in the district and therefore
pleaded with the Kwahu East District Assembly to help re- roof a bungalow at Kwahu
Pepase health centre which was ripped-up in April this year during a heavy
storm.
