Adiembra benefits from IPEP initiative as MP cuts sod for ultra modern CHPS Compound
The Adiembra township a suburb of Sekondi, should all things go as planned, will have an ultra modern Community-Bases Health Planning Services (CHPS) facility built within the next six months.
This health infrastructure is being funded by the Coastal Development Authority under the auspices of the Ministry for Special Development Initiative. The CHPS compound will have an incinerator, an accommodation, and other facilities to enhance the delivery of health services, all estimated at a cost of GHC750,000.00.
Speaking at the sidelines of a sod cutting ceremony yesterday [Friday 17 July, 2020], Member of Parliament for Sekondi, Andrew Egyapa Mercer disclosed that government is much particular about enhancing access to quality healthcare. He noted that having these facilities established within the constituency eases the burden at the regional hospital, which is situated in the constituency.
“…the Effia Nkwanta Regional Hospital that we anticipating its redevelopment is intended to be a tertiary institution which does not serve everyday headache and tummy aches. So it is important that we have community based clinics that serve the immediate and urgent but non-complicated medical needs of the people.” he stated.
The project is being executed by World Bridge Investments Limited.
The Managing Director for the company, Ekow Briandt promised to mobilize to site within a week to begin clearing the area. He assured of employing local resources including workforce, so the project could impact on the economic livelihood of residents.
The Adiembra community has already benefited from a 12 unit classroom block and a mechanised borehole for the Senior High School, asphalt overlay, and many other projects including an artificial football pitch, which are undergoing construction.
