In fulfillment of his election promises to ensure his people have access to quality healthcare, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Kumbugu Constituency in the Northern Region; Hon Professor Hamza Adam made a big intervention in primary healthcare with a provision of ultramodern health facility for the people of Tibung Community.
With the commissioning of healthcare facilities in the hard-to-reach Tibung community areas of Kumbugu Constituency, there seems to be a new lease of life for the residents.
The Commissioning of the Health facility which focuses on maternity services to the hard-to-reach Tibung community was no mere joke.
The facility which proved to be the only health centre for the entire Tibung and its environs has inadequate infrastructure thereby hindering the effective delivery of health care services.
This,, therefore prompted the leadership of the community to put up a maternity ward to complement the existing facilities, but their efforts could not fully materialize as a result of resource constraints.
The attention of the MP, Professor Hamza Adam was drawn to the structure and the need to step in and complete it for them, so he quickly delegated his constituency executives to send a contractor to the site for work to begin towards completing the facility.
Thankfully, the lawmaker within two months after the award of the contract completed the facility for commissioned to cater for the residents of Tibung and its immediate neighbour communities.
In remarks to commission the project, Prof Adam who is the Deputy Ranking member of Environment, Science and Technology Committee of Parliament indicated that women are the bedrock of the nation’s development and therefore they must give birth in a dignified and conducive environment.
He admonished residents, especially women to always patronize the maternity ward during their pre natal and post natal periods in order to reduce the rate of maternal mortality, stating that, even though the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) accepted standard of maternal mortality rate for every 100,000 live births is 70, Ghana’s Maternal mortality rate is 310 for every 100, 000 live births, a situation he noted required prudent policies and measures to reduce the maternal mortality rate.
He again used the opportunity to appeal to government to look into issues of cost of sanitary pads as the inability to acquire sanitary pads at such high costs shatter the dreams of many young girls education, trade, and even emotionally and psychologically.
Professor Adam reiterated his commitment to improving the healthcare delivery in the Kumbungu constituency and also pleaded with the staff of the Tibung CHPS compound to continue giving their best to the society.
He also commended Constituents for their supports over the year and assured them he would continue to work hard to justify the confidence repose on him by electing him on December 7, 2022.
The Kumbungu District Director of Health, Mr. Braimah Mustapha Farouk, thanked the MP for his continuous support to their outfit since becoming MP two years ago.
He assured the MP of a harmonious working relationship towards improving the healthcare delivery in the Kumbungu constituency, adding that, the directorate would ( a good maintenance culture in order to benefit fully from the facility.
Naa Abudu, Chief of Tibung, expressed his utmost appreciation to the MP for such making such a big intervention for his people and asked that more of such facilities be provided.
