The Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) has delivered essential supplies for Phase II of the Community-based Health Planning and Services Plus (CHPS+) Project in the Upper East Region.

This initiative follows the successful completion of Phase I, which aims to strengthen the primary healthcare delivery system in line with Ghana’s universal health coverage (UHC) targets.

The donated items, designed to support the efforts of community health volunteers, include two brand-new Hilux pickups, 600 motorcycles, 630 pairs of Wellington boots, 630 bicycles, 630 mobile phones, 630 flashlights, 100 handwashing basins, 630 knapsack sprayers, 17 laptops, and various medical equipment for hospitals in the region.

During the handover event, Dr. Samuel K. Boakye-Boateng, Upper East Regional Director of Health Service, urged community health volunteers and healthcare providers to adhere to best practices in order to improve and achieve UHC in the region.

He emphasized the importance of their roles in ensuring quality healthcare delivery, highlighting that the resources were vital for the mobilization and organization activities conducted by community health volunteers, and that healthcare professionals were integral to the project’s implementation.

KOICA’s Country Director, Mr. Donghyun Lee, emphasized that the success of the CHPS+ Phase II project depends on the relentless efforts of community leaders, volunteers, and healthcare professionals in the region.

He stated that the supplies were part of a comprehensive approach by the Korean government, which includes capacity building for human resources, infrastructure development, and provision of health equipment, aimed at ensuring quality healthcare for all Ghanaians, especially those in underserved areas.

Mr. Bhanu Pathak, UNICEF’s Chief Field Officer, expressed gratitude for being part of the project, noting the organization’s role in providing procurement support and expertise in maternal, child, and newborn health to improve the quality of care.

Pe Dennis Aniakwoa Balinia Adda Asagpare II, Paramount Chief of Navrongo Traditional Area, also addressed the gathering, urging health professionals to utilize the donated items to enhance healthcare delivery in rural areas.
