USAID refurbishes five model CHPS compounds in the Ashanti Region

Anansu (A/R)- The United States Agency International Development (USAID) in collaboration with the Ghana Health Services (GHS) has refurbished five Community Health Planning and Services (CHPS) in five selected districts of Ashanti to the tune of G00,000.00.

The beneficiary communities were Anansu-Atwima-Mponua, Narniekrom; Ahafo Ano South, Numesua in the Ahafo Ano North, Adobesu; Sekyere Afram Plains and Nkujoa in the Sekyere Central districts.

This brings to eight the number of CHPS compounds refurbished in the region in partial fulfilment of the five-year USAID-funded Maternal and Child Survival Programme (MCSP).

Mr Pius Affipunga, MSCP/ CHPS Senior Technical Specialist, who spoke on behalf of Karen Caldwell, Director of MCSP-Ghana, said, the initiative formed part of the United Nations government’s agenda to promote primary health care in distant and deprived communities.

He explained that through a fixed amount award, MCSP was working closely with GHS to provide technical and financial support to five focal regions, which would include Ashanti, the rest would be Brong Ahafo, Eastern, Upper East and Upper East, saying that, USAID/ MSCP were committed to supporting GHS/ CHPS compound in the country.

A short but impressive ceremony held at Anansu in the Atwima-Mponua district attracted health officials, traditional leaders, members of the communities and other stakeholders.

Some of the equipment used for the refurbishment were dressing instruments, home visiting instruments, emergency delivery instruments, detention beds and furniture.

Dr Emmanuel Kwadwo Tinkorang, the Regional Health Director, who was at the ceremony said, in the quest to achieve good health and the wellbeing of individuals as stipulated Sustainable Development Goals -3 (SDG3), Ghana is using CHPS as one of the strategies to render basic health services to inhabitants at communities and household levels.

CHPS zones, he added, were in line with local government demarcated electoral areas and Ashanti had been divided into 1,114 CHPS zones out of which 160 have service delivery and residential structures called CHPS compounds.

The compounds are mostly in deprived communities, where access to basic health service is very low.

He said, contrary to the assertion that the region was endowed with health facilities; it had most of the facilities concentrated in the urban areas.

Over 50 percent of the inhabitants live in rural areas with accessible quality basic health, adding that some of the CHPS lacked the basic medical equipment to render optimum care per their levels.

He commended USAID/MCSP for equipping the five compounds as model CHPS in the selected districts, stating that it was in line with the region’s strategy to provide quality and accessible health care to all people irrespective of where they live to prevent morbidities and mortalities, especially, among children under five and pregnant women.

Dr Tinkorang noted that USAID/MCSP had been helpful to the region over the past two years in CHPS implementation services.

He called for the support of the community as he said the items alone would not guarantee the success of the CHPS compounds.

Children urged to cultivate reading habit

Accra- Mrs Matilda Amissah-Arthur, former Second Lady, has urged children and the public, to cultivate the habit of reading, for its various benefits.

”Reading can open your minds and make you intelligent, reading can open your hearts because of the love and joy you experience through the stories, it can transform you to become better children,” she said.

Mrs. Amissah-Arthur said this on Friday, at the International Children’s Book Day celebration, which was held in Accra.

She noted that reading was one of the best ways of getting informed and educated about situations and events, which one could never had known.

The former first lady observed, that reading served as an alternate means of exploring, because whilst people looked into books for specific reasons, it was always possible to find from books, information which one had not even set off to find, thus, broadening one’s scope immensely.

Mrs. Amissah-Arthur urged parents and teachers, not to use reading as a means of punishment on children, but rather, encourage them to read, through pleasant means, in order to nurture their reading interests.

Mr. Guy Amarteifio, the Greater Accra Regional Librarian, appealed to the government, NGOs, business organisations, and all other concerned stake-holders, to come to the aid of the Ghana Library Authority.

He said for libraries in the country to survive, it was important for Metropolitan, Municipal, District Assemblies and opinion leaders, to see libraries as an integral part of the community, and support them.

The media should also collaborate with the Ghana Library Authority, to publicise its activities, and attract more users and sponsors to the library,” he said.

Mr. Amartefio observed that outreach programs by the Ghana Library Authority had shown that children and people in general were very much drawn to books.

He said it was not true that the new era of information communication technology had taken over books, adding that, ICT merely enhanced reading, but had not taken over books.

The Regional Librarian said if libraries in the country were provided with all they needed to operate effectively, they could serve their role of educating people, especially children more effectively, which was much needed for the development of the nation as a whole.

The day is celebrated annually in commemoration of Hans Christian Andersen, a prolific writer of children’s books, famous for his fairy tales.

The Ugly Duckling, The Emperor’s New Clothes and The Tinder Box are some of the books he is known for.

This year’s celebration was under the theme, ”The Small is Big in a Book.”

A number of schools ranking from the pre-school level to junior high were awarded prizes for participating in competitions, ranging from spelling to cultural dancing and singing, which formed part of activities to mark the day.

GHANA’S PRESIDENT PLEDGES TO SUPPORT GUINEA-BISSAU’S POLITICAL STABILITY

ACCRA– President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has pledged Ghana’s support for Guinea Bissau’s political stability and democratic process, as the troubled West African nation prepares to hold elections in November, this year.

Ghana would do all it could to ensure that normalcy was brought to Guinea Bissau and to put an end to the constitutional crisis so as to return the country on the road to peace and development, he added when the visiting Prime Minister of Guinea Bissau, Aristides Gomes, called on him at Jubilee House office here Thursday.

Gomes, during his meeting with the President, appealed to Ghana and members of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to lend financial support to Guinea Bissau to enable it to successfully carry out the elections in November.

He told President Akufo-Addo that with the current crisis in Guinea Bissau, coupled with the International Monetary Fund’s restrictions on its economy, the country needed more resources to organizse the elections.

Gomes disclosed that some countries had given assurances but would be encouraged if ECOWAS also participated financially in that endeavour.

He informed President Akufo-Addo that the political parties in the country had agreed to work together and had signed an agreement to work towards peace and stability.

The Prime Minister said stability in that country would essentially bring about reforms after the elections, and those reforms, which would be in the areas of defence and security, public administration and justice, would inform constitutional amendments to avoid potential crisis in the future”.

He further asked that the ECOWAS Military Intervention Force in Guinea Bissau remain in the country after the elections until such a time that reforms were taken to safeguard the stability and peace of the country.

President Akufo-Addo promised to push the agenda for support for that country’s election at the next ECOWAS and Africa Union meetings, saying; I’m confident that something would be done.

Everybody is encouraged by you and the manner in which you have come; we recognize that this is a historic opportunity to try and bring this long standing crisis to a closure. So whatever be the case, you can count on me, you can count on Ghana for us to make a strong case as well as the post electoral situation as far as the ECOMOG (the ECOWAS Monitoring Group) is concerned.
