The donation which was aimed at improving health care delivery and also to help bring quality health care services to the doorsteps of the people was funded through the Assembly’s Internally Generated Fund (IGF).
Equipment presented includes (2) Oxygen cylinder and flow meter, five (5) Penguin section devises, five (5) Drip stands, two (2) screens, a Suction machine, 15 bed sheets, Autoclave, 3 boxes of Cannula, 2 Fetal Doppler, 5 boxes of Giving set, Artery Forceps', 2 delivery sets, drum, 6 kidney dishes among others.
The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr. Elijah Adansi-Bonah presenting the items to the Municipal Health Directorate, noted that, the support is in response to a request by the Health directorate concerning equipment challenges confronting the Sanso health centre and other health facilities in the municipality.
He underscored the importance of having a well-resourced and functioning health centre in that enclave.
"Sanso Health center is strategically located to deliver quality health care not only to the people of Sanso but the surrounding villages such as Suhyenso and Nyamebekyere. This informed the Assembly to come in and support the health centre.”
Mr. Adansi-Bonah indicated that the Sanso Health centre was built by the Chief and people of Sanso with the support of the Obuasi Municipal Assembly and has been functioning but has fallen short of equipment to help it function optimally.
He however, said the Assembly is focused on making Obuasi the hub of quality healthcare delivery in the region, hence has made a lot of investments in the health sector.
The Municipal Health Director Madam Margaret Yaa Manu, who received the items on behalf of the Health centre, lauded the MCE for prioritizing issues in the health sector. She revealed that the equipment will boost the morale of the workers at the facility to deliver on their mandate.
