Health Workers at Yaw Barimakrom, a farming community in the Dormaa East District of the Bono Region, have stated that Telecommunications network challenges are affecting their services and output.
“It`s difficult getting in touch with the District Hospital at Wamfie, the District capital in case of emergency,” Mr. Frank Kyere, a community health officer at the Yaw Barimakrom Community-Based Health Planning and Services (CHPS)compound stated
Narrating the situation in an interview on Thursday, March 5, at Wamfie, he said they only monitored the weather in the evening and stood at a particular location before they could place calls to the health Directorate in Wamfie.
He was worried that in case of emergency delivery, accident and severe abdominal pains that needed transfers, it was a major problem alerting the Directorate.
Mr. Kyere added that filling insurance claims of clients at the CHPS compound was another huge challenge.
This, he explained that records of National Health Insurance claims of clients could only be compiled with mobile phones given to them for such purpose.
Mr. Kyere said it was threatening the accelerated progress in Primary Healthcare Services in the community and therefore appealed to the telecommunication companies through Mr. Emmanuel Kofi Agyemang, the District Chief Executive, and the Member of Parliament for the area and the Wamfie Traditional Council to support them.
