In line with measures by government to help bring healthcare services to the doorsteps of Ghanaians, the Member of Parliament for Tolon in the Northern region, Wahab Suhiyini Wumbei is planning to construct Community Based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) centre at Tali.

This will ostensibly serve as first point of call in case of any health problem by inhabitants as well as help mitigate unnecessary deaths in various tertiary or major healthcare facilities or hospitals due to problem of no primary healthcare services in relatively smaller communities.

In an interaction with, Hon. Wahab Wumbei intimated that he is willing to pump some resources from his quota in the NHIS fund to push that project.

He explained that with such a facility in place inhabitants could then access primary healthcare services that will help ease pressure in the clinics and other health centres around the area.

For an averagely small community like Tali, it is obvious that it might be overwhelmed with some social challenges that might retard growth and development of the area, however with efforts in place to assist complete such a meaningful facility in the near future, it will help to gradually meet the quality of life expected by all individuals within the district.
