Clinics in the Tain District
Stable and sustainable healthcare provision in a remote area in the Brong Ahafo Region in Ghana.
Strategic use of this health centre for:
- improvement of the general healthcare;
- improvement of the individual health situation;
- encouragement of the population to use health facilities, since they are close by;
- sustainable reduction of the populations’ health issues;
- generation of income and thereby generation of resources for the local population.
Constructing health facilities in the remote villages of Tanoso Njua, Tainso, Tanokrom, and Tiadene in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana as the key to improving healthcare provision. Madamfo Ghana wants to sustainably improve the life quality of the population of this region. Healthcare provision is of paramount importance to do that.
The Brong Ahafo Region is one the poorest regions of Ghana. The existing infrastructure for healthcare provision is scarce, there barely are health facilities.
The 4 villages are located in the Tain District, between 7 and 35 kilometres from Nsawkaw, the district’s capital. There is no public transportation. If you are in need of medical help, you have to walk all the way to the district’s capital.
The inhabitants of the municipalities are mostly farmers. The population figures of the villages are as follows: Tanoso Njua approx. 2,000; Tainso approx. 850; Tanokrom approx. 750; and Tiadene approx. 350.
Every village has their own nursery and primary school. Tainso and Tanokrom also have a High School.
The total catchment area of this project – including neighborhood villages – are approx. 10,000 people.
