TECHIMAN TO BEGIN TRAINING OF NURSES AND MIDWIVES SOON

18 Aug

The Techiman Municipal Assembly, in collaboration with the Catholic Church is putting up a nurses and midwifery training school in Techiman.
The municipal Chief Executive for Techiman, Hon. Alex Kyeremeh who said this also explained that processes are ongoing to ensure that the training school, which is near completion, begins operations within the shortest possible time.
Hon. Alex Kyeremeh was speaking at a durbar organized by the people of Atrensu to commemorate the sod-cutting and handing over ceremony of a Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS) compound.
The project, according to the Chief Executive costs about GH₵50,000.00, adding that two identical projects were also soon to be handed over to other communities in the municipality.
Mr. Raphael Dagoe, the Municipal Health Director explained the CHPS concept to the residents saying; it was born out of an experiment conducted at Navrongo in the Upper West region in which it was realized that bringing health services to the doorsteps of the people caused child morbidity, cost of transportation to access medical care among others to reduce drastically, enhancing the quality of life of the people.
He explained some of the services to be rendered at the facility as Antenatal care, reproductive Health and Family Planning, disease surveillance, emergency delivery services and more.
The municipal Director of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), Mr. Augustine Appau, encouraged the residents to register and remain with the scheme. He also sought to debunk the notion that the scheme was collapsing and said that the scheme is rather growing stronger.
Chairman for the occasion and Chief of Atrensu, Nana Frempah Quarshie thanked the Municipal Assembly and promised to cooperate with officers manning the facility to ensure that the people obtained the best from the facility.
