Hyewohoden (E/R), Oct. 06, GNA – The Kwahu
East District Health Directorate with support from the Japanese Organization
for International Cooperation in Family Planning (JOICFP) has handed over
tricycle ambulances to the Hyewohoden and Orobon health centers to aid health
care delivery.

Ms Vida Efua Afful, the District Director of
Health Services, said the goal was to help end the increasing maternal deaths
in these areas due largely to the bad nature of roads there.

Accessing quality healthcare services was
increasingly becoming difficult, especially for pregnant women and children,
because of the deplorable road network.

She said the tricycle ambulance would enable the
health workers to respond to emergencies and to make case referrals.

She underlined the eagerness of the
directorate to collaborate with non-governmental organizations and
philanthropists to provide more of such facilities to deprived communities in
the district.

Madam Makoto Yaguchi, the JOICFP
Representative, entreated the health workers to use the tricycle ambulances for
its intended purpose.

She promised the supply of more of the
ambulances to hard-to-reach communities.

Nana Asante Ababio II, the chief of
Nkwantanan, said they were grateful for the gesture – the ambulances would help
to save lives.

He appealed to the government to move quickly
to fix the Kotoso-Hyewohoden road.
