The entire sixty (60) communities in the Sekyere Afram Plain Constituency are dependent on only two CHPS compounds for health delivery.

The Mp for the area, Alex Adomako-Mensah indicated that though the area lacks a lot of basic amenities, the absence of a hospital, clinic or health centre is more worrying and needed to be tackled now.

He is particularly worried that the roads in the area are also not motorable to facilitate transportation of sick persons to hospitals outside the constituency posing serious danger to residents especially in emergency situations.

He admitted the low level of social amenities in the area is attributed the newness of the district which was created not too long ago but added that the newness should rather be the basis for which more attention and resources should be channeled to the area to rise its status for residents to also have relieve.

Mr. Adomako-Mensah was however confident that having made the plight of the constituency known to authorities, the necessary interventions will come especially in the health sector from government as there are already plans to provide districts without health facilities with on.
