A new clinic to help provide health care for people within Adenkerebi and its environs in the Ga East Municipality has been unveiled.

The clinic, the first of its kind in the area was built by the Infantra Malaria Prevention Foundation (IMPF).

Inesfly Africa, producers of insecticide paints after the construction helped to paint the building with insecticide paints that are to help prevent the spread of endemic diseases.

Surrounding communities such as Ayim, Agyemanti, Senpue and Kponkpo all within the Akuapim Hills area are also to benefit from the facility.

Speaking at the unveiling, the chairperson of the IMPF, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, noted that the decision to build the health facility was to help the people get treatment within their community rather than travelling long distances for health care.

She said the facility will help treat malaria cases, giving the residents a fighting chance of survival and long life.

Dr Julius A. Dadebo, the Ga East Municipal Director of Health urged health workers to serve the people with integrity.

The Ga East Municipal Chief Executive, Mr Kwaw Sackey, underscored the need for quality health care in every community since it was paramount to the development of every nation and thanked IMPF and Inesfly for their gesture.

The chief of Adenkerebi, Nana Okai Ankamah I, who unveiled the clinic expressed gratitude for gesture and expressed the hope that it will help people receive good quality health care.
