KOFIH upgrades two health facilities estimated at more than ₵1.9m


By Jones Anlimah

The Korean Foundation for International Healthcare (KOFIH), has renovated and expanded the infrastructure deficit of two health facilities at Kpeve Old Town in the Afadjato South and Fodome Ahor in the Hohoe Municipality of the Volta region at a cost of over 1.9 million Ghana cedis. 

Commissioning the two facilities, the Deputy Minister of Health, Mr. Mahama Asei Seini, revealed that the Ministry has begun the implementation of an intervention dubbed the “Network of Practice,” which seeks to optimise resources at primary healthcare levels, ultimately enhancing health service delivery across the country.

The renovation of the health post at Kpeve old town in the Afadjato South district of the Volta region was necessitated by the small nature of an existing health facility, which was deemed to be underserving the health needs of the people of the area, while the improvement in infrastructure deficit in the Community-Based Health Planning and Service (CHPS) Compounds at fodome Ahor in the Hohoe municipality of the region was also to enable the facility to serve the growing health needs of residents.

The renovation of the two health facilities, estimated at over 1.9 million Ghana cedis, therefore aims to bolster the region’s healthcare infrastructure and improve access to quality healthcare services for the residents in the beneficiary communities. The renovated health facilities in Kpeve Old Town and Fodome Ahor will also enable the two facilities to offer a wider range of services to ensure that residents receive comprehensive medical care closer to home. 

The Volta regional Director of Health Services, Dr. Chrisantus Kubio, expressed gratitude for the timely  intervention and said that the renovation and expansion of the health facilities were a crucial step towards improving healthcare outcomes in the region.

He highlighted the foundation’s ongoing efforts to support sustainable healthcare development in the country.  “The completion of these projects is a testament to the power of partnership between KOFFIH, the Ministry of Health, and the Ghana Health Service, showcasing how collaboration can lead to significant improvement in health outcomes. let continue to support and empower each other in this mission,” he stated.

The Deputy Minister of Health, Mr. Mahama Asei-Seini, emphasised the government’s commitment to enhancing healthcare accessibility and quality nationwide.
