Indigenes of Pramkese Kodiabe in the Eastern Region who domicile in Europe have contributed to provide a facelift to the maternity ward of their Community Health Center which serves eleven communities in the Municipality.

Dr. Ranford Kwame Antwi, Chairman of the Europe chapter in his remarks underscored the importance of keeping the health center clean and ensuring that there is constant maintenance and not to allow the facility to collapse and then turn around to build a new facility.

He urged staff of the facility to see everything there as their own and give it the needed attention and care, promising that “we have bigger plan for this clinic”, he said.

The Chief of Pramkese Kodiabe, Barima Ofori Frimpong II cautioned those encroaching on the land reserved for expansion to desist from that.

The Municipal health director of Kwaebibirem Dr. Bernard Asare noted that it is their duty to ensure that everyone has access to quality health service and further noted that there are places they wished they could provide chips compound.

Again, he added that government is in partnership with the private sector to provide hospitals and noted on their part they would facilitate for the facility to become a polyclinic and later a hospital.

“We want you to continue helping and assisting, we are also working for clinics around the community to support this very one which can take care of simple conditions. We are developing chips compounds around; all of them would spring up to support the chips compound”.

 Senior Physician Assistant Harrison Atuobi thanked the health Committee for their work and added that sometimes when the going became tough they had wanted to give up but when the challenges were put before the board of the health facility they came in to assist.
