The Bosome Freho District Health Director, Clement Nti-Boateng, has appealed to government to build a hospital, befitting the status of the district.

He explained that the hospital will ease the suffering of patients, reduce needless deaths and referral of emergency cases to urban centres and also revealed that patients and pregnant women sometimes walked or travel over 20 kilometers to access healthcare.

He made the appeal at Asiwa, the district capital when the Member of Parliament for the Bosome Freho Constituency, Joyce Adwoa Ako-Dei , donated assorted hospital equipment worth 120 thousand Ghana Cedis to the district health directorate for distribution to the health centres in the district.

The items, funded from the MP’s Health Facility Development Fund, are to aid the administrative work of the health centres.

They included refigerators, infant scales, and delivery sets.

Making the presentation, Member of Parliament for the Bosome Freho Constituency, Joyce Adwoa Ako-Dei Madam Adwoa Ako-Dei said while she acknowledges the challenges that face most parts of the district in terms of healthcare delivery, the donation is a direct response to the distress call from the district health directorate over the lack of basic items at the health centres.

She highlighted some of the major issues hampering quality healthcare delivery including poor road network and therefore urged government to assist the district in that regard.

The district health Director, Clement Nti-Boateng who received the items noted that a befitting hospital would be a big intervention in the district’s healthcare delivery system.

He expressed gratitude to the MP for her timely intervention, saying the items will be put to good used.
