Felix Annin, a senior Physician's Assistant for Sefwi Asawinso in the Wiaso District of the Western North Region, has called for the completion of the abandoned Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound.

He called on the president as a matter of urgency to complete the abandoned Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound to aid healthcare delivery in the area.

Annin disclosed that the current Health Center catering for over 30,000 residents is a rented apartment and will have its rent expiring in April 2020.

He said the small nature of the two-room facility with a porch has no proper ventilation for patients while male, female, children and maternity wards are together in a single room with only three beds.

Annin added that the rooms are always hot with no toilet facility or source of water to administer healthcare.

The situation affects healthcare delivery on a hot working day which can see more than 50 patients being attended to.

During such situations, the facility resorts to benches while some patients have to take turns using the beds.

The residence say it’s difficult for them to access good healthcare because of the deplorable state of the CHPS compound and bad roads leading to where the facility is located.

Queen of Sefwi Asawinso, Nana Ama Kyinyie II, revealed that her town will boycott any political activity if the government fails to complete the abandoned CHPS compound project to support good health delivery in the district.

She called on the government to complete the abandoned Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound to aid healthcare delivery in the area.
