The Member of Parliament for Sissala East constituency, Madam Sulemana Alijata Gbentie in consultation with the District Health Directorate is this year advancing a token of GHS 500 to some nurses identified in three remote communities in the Sissala East district.

This is delivered annually and intended to serve as a motivational package going to them for accepting postings into the remote villages within the district.

It also forms part of her contribution to help ensure easy access to health posts by the local dwellers to boost quality health in the area.

Speaking to the MP noted that accessibility to healthcare services for residents was paramount in the development agenda of the district, for that matter it was important to get nurses across board to assist in health delivery including the deprived communities.

Beneficiary communities identified so far under this move included Santinjan, Wuru, and Bawiesibelle.

Madam Alijata has also disclosed that upon the advice of the Health Directorate she will expand this support and roll-out more villages and small communities to benefit from it.
