Bonthe district has received 5 truck loads of free health care medical assistance, using road and sea transportation. This was made possible as a result of constant appeals from district stakeholders made to the Ministry of Health and Sanitation, to consider the vulnerability of riverine communities who have little or no access to the service. Hon. Prince Edwin is Chairman oversight committee on health observed that riverine communities in Bonthe district is one of the most difficult areas to reach, and added that access needs to be improved for not only health workers, but other service providers to help address the many challenges faced by inhabitants. He commended the ministry’s administration for continuous efforts to improve on quality health service, which the MP maintained Government is striving towards in line with universal health coverage, leaving no one behind. At a ceremony to receive the much-needed items, residents of Bonthe noted that together with the DHMT and the police, they will ensure that the medical supplies are stored and distributed in a transparent manner. Baindu Moore expressed delight over the items, but called on the DHMT to ensure that because of the difficult terrain, enough supplies should be made in order to avoid drug stockout, a concern by most communities, around the country.
