Chairman of the Subsidiary Legislation Committee, Hon. Osei Bonsu Amoah, says the health needs of his constituents still remain a number priority on his agenda.

He therefore would leave no stone unturned to ensure that they receive the best of medical care to enable them stay healthy and contribute their quota to the development of the area and the country at large.

Hon.

The exercise is taking place in over 28 demarcated centers across the constituency.

The Akuapem South legislator told Kasapafmonline.com on the sidelines of the event after visiting some centers in Brekuso, Ahwerase, Aburi, Jamaicaso, and Kitase that apart from the medical suppliers he sponsored, he is also taking care of the cost of surgery, accommodation, transportation and feeding of the medical team.

“I must emphasis that the cost is from my own personal resources to augment other health intervention programs for my people”, he noted.

The leader of the medical team, Curtis Siaw Addae, an Optometrist at the KATH Eye Center said his outfit is expecting to screen over 8,000 people in the exercise.
