Nurses at Apoli, Akotekroom, Kokobeng and Duokon, Health Centers in Birim South District have resort to using torch lights and lamps to deliver babies due to lack of electricity.

According to reports, most of the health centers in the area have no electricity and those with electricity are also having challenges with the erratic power supply, which is affecting health delivery.

In an interview with Adom FM’s reporter Kwasi Azor, the District Director of Health Services in Birim South, Vida Afua Afful, said the situation is unbearable.

“We are really suffering in this town, pregnant mothers who come at night are supposed to be delivered with the use of torch lights and lamps which is very dangerous.

Vida Afua Afful made these revelations during their Annual performance review 2014 at Akyem swedru. She was however optimistic that her outfit would work harder to improve upon health delivery systems in the town.

Vida Afful appealed to traditional leaders, NGOs and philanthropists to provide them generators and solar panels for effecitive health delivery.
