THE ABANDONED MATERNITY AND CHILDRENS BLOCK PROJECT OF KOMFO ANOKYE TEACHING HOSPITAL
Nearly 1000 bed capacity block
10 dedicated theatres
28 consulting rooms
Separate dedicated Maternal and children's emergency and critical care facilities
Diagnostic services ..labs , X-rays, Scans
Training and simulation rooms for teaching and skills training etc
A one stop shop for women and children's healthcare. One of a kind in the subregion.
However, for 42 years, we have pretended to be working on this project while the maternity and child health units are congested beyond sanity.
For 42 years our mothers have and continue to labour on dirty and congested floors lest they get turned away.
For 42 years we have and continue watch on as fragile babies are stacked into cots as the slaves of times past while pleas to donors have failed to turn their heads
For 42 years we have played lottery with lives of vulnerable women and children while professing to care on political platforms .
For 42 years we have failed to see the urgency and wisdom of completing this structure and we have watched as the cost has ballooned by the year while we have preached financial prudence
Yes, this project was started 42 years ago and has seen several governments who have given several excuses.
Almost all Presidents of the 4th republic from President Kuffour to President Mahama promised to complete it but never finished it.
Almost all Ministers of Health have captured it as a top priority project yet the project still stalls while new ones sprout everywhere.
For how long must it tarry?
How many pregnant women and innocent children must spill their blood for us to realise our sheer lack of care for their welfare?
We cannot stand by and look on. It could be your wife , it can be your sister or your only child who may need care in the hospital and will have to die because someone else is on the table.
It could be your constituent or even a female MP . We must care !
This project must be completed ASAP!
No amount of money is too much for the lives that are being lost daily due to lack of space and equipment while this project that could significantly reduce the lives being lost stands uncompleted after several promises for over 40 years. No excuse is worthy !
We must #finishthisnow !
