Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo, has commissioned a National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) office in her constituency.
At the commissioning, Adwoa Safo said, the GH¢1.5 million facility was built to boost service delivery.
The NHIS project had been one of her major priorities to take health insurance services to the doorstep of constituents.
The purpose of the facility is to enhance the Country’s efforts at achieving the Sustainable Development Goal which centre on health and the well-being of people in local communities.
She said, “What this mean is that more people will have easy access for their service in the constituency. I now expect more people to patronize the services of
the NHIS because registration, renewals and collection would be done stress-free.”
“As MP, this edifice is very close to my heart and I want to put on record that Dome-Kwabenya Constituency is the first to have such an office in the Greater Accra Region. I am grateful to His Excellency the President, Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr Lydia Dsane Selby CEO of NHIA; for hearing our cries when we knocked on your doors.”
She urged workers at the facility to ensure a good maintenance culture and serve the people well.
Other health projects undertaken by the MP in the constituency are the Haatso Maternity Clinic and OPD Block at Abokobi Health Centre.
“I have renewed NHIS cards for over 1,000 people in my constituency and there has been health screening for women, specifically breast cancer and
the aged. These are some of the health projects we have rolled out in this constituency…health is wealth,” she added.
