Ecobank Ghana PLC and Agriplus Limited have supported a team of six students from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology to renovate a CHP compound at Hobor in the Ga South District of the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.

The project sought to address critical gaps in healthcare delivery system of the CHPs compound that crippled access to quality health care by mostly women and children in Hobor.

It entails infrastructural support and logistics to the CHPs compound to enable health workers at the compound operate in-house as well as provide outreach health services to support maternal and child welfare activities.

Speaking to Joy Business, the leader of the team, Maxwell Glalah, said the project forms part of their academic requirements for the award of an MSc Degree in Development Management.

He explained that, the Hobor community was chosen due to the gaps in its healthcare delivery.

“This project forms part of our academic requirements for the award of an MSc Degree in Development Management. We decided on this community, looking at the gaps that were available in terms of healthcare delivery, so we sought to address this gap to improve healthcare delivery in the community”.

Assemblyman for the Hobor community, Peter Adonu expressed his delight, indicating, the project has been a hurdle for him since elected.

“I am really happy because the CHP compound has been renovated and expanded. The community members were yearning for this and I believe with this being done it will help so much. We are grateful to Ecobank and Agriplus who sponsored this”.

The team donated other hospital equipment for healthcare delivery in the community.

The project was also supported by the Chief Executive Officer for Aker Energy, Khadija Amoah.
