DG CRSPHCDA, Dr Betta Edu has praised her Boss who she refers to as the promise keeper and the system stabilizer for his effort in the revitalization of Primary Health Care services in the state. She said building a sustainable and efficient health care system requires us to substantially rethink the status quo, develop new models, infrastructures, rehabilitate existing PHCs, change approaches to care and push for greater integration.
According to her, the promise was made by His Excellency, Senator Prof Ben Ayade last week when he visited the area for a town hall meeting, we followed up and today we have the result.
“Recalls that Governor Ben Ayade administration had on assumption of office promised to revitalise PHCs in the State to ensure qualitative and affordable healthcare delivery.
“We have been very relentless and target-driven in pursuing the noble objective. The Governor has commissioned over forty Primary healthcare centres already since the beginning of revitalization programme of PHCs on 2015 and Ibalebo facility will be added to the numbers in the coming days says Dr Edu.
