The Ho Municipal Health Director, Madam Vic Kpelly, has appealed to contractors working on the Tanyigbe CHPS compound to speed up with construction works.
According to her, the construction is long overdue making healthcare delivery a challenge for both the providers and residents in the Tanyigbe community.
Madam Kpelly shared her frustration with the media when official from the Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC), toured the Region to see for themselves existence of projects which were mentioned in the budget as been financed by the petroleum revenue in the Volta Region.
She also called for the landscape of the facility to be attended as well as equipment to fill the facility when it is completed.
“We are really happy that the oil money is being enjoyed by the Tanyigbe people. We are really happy and excited, because looking at the building and this one, you will see that the space is so small. They do OPD , deliveries and maternal and child health activities in that small single room which doesn’t give them privacy” she said
Madam Kpelly believed that, when government is able to finish the project on time, staff will have their segregated rooms and can work with privacy thereby making the clients have the confidence in their healthcare providers.
She added that, when the facility is completed and equipment fully installed, more staff will be willing to come and work to the benefit of the community.

Prosper Pi Bansah, Municipal Chief Executive for Ho central also expressed dissatisfaction on the slow pace of work on Tanyigbe CHPS compound and the Klefe Demetey CHPS compound and called on the various Contractors to speed up with works which on paper was captured as 41.25% and 37.50% progress respectively with implementing agency as Ministry of health.
