Kokofu Hospital Cries For Help
KOKOFU GOVERNMENT Hospital, one of the few health facilities in the country, with dermatology to treat various kinds of skin diseases, is in dire need of infrastructural development.
Mr. David Teye Angmor, Administrator of the Hospital said the facility, which serves numerous people in the municipality and the region as a whole, and treating all kinds of diseases is not easily accessible because of poor road network from the Kokofu Township to the facility.
According to him, the road, which was awarded to a contractor by the Ghana Cocoa Board, has come to a halt due to non-payment to the contractor by the Cocoa Board.
He said the non-payment of the contractor from COCOBOD’s Internal Generated Fund (IGF) and locality mobilization has affected the completion of projects like the construction of the road from Kokofu Township to the facility, Maternity ward and the theatre which are under construction.
Mr. Teye Angmor has appealed to the Government through Ministry of Health (MOH) and Ghana Health Service (GHS) to help improve the conditions at the facility.
Alhaji Dr. U. Konney, the Medical Superintendent in charge of the Hospital and dermatologist also pleaded with government agencies and the stakeholders to give herbal medicines the needed boost as herbal medicines also have the potential of treating skin diseases saying that would help eliminate the quakes among them.
He entreated the government and the general public not to discard herbal medicine completely.
