The Dunkwa Kyekyewere Health Center was built in 1974. The following medical fields are covered by the clinic:
prenatal care, reproductive child health, paediatric clinic, ultrasound examinations, laboratory, outpatient and inpatient care as well as patient monitoring.
In recent decades, the population has risen sharply, which is why health care is no longer guaranteed for everyone.

The clinic has only a very small room for patients who need inpatient care. In addition, women/children and men are accommodated together. Furthermore, there is a lack of important equipment to ensure a smooth, daily routine in the clinic routine. There are not enough staff since there is no staff accommodation.

Project objectives:

The Dunkwa Kyekyewere Health Center underwent expansion in 2019, with the addition of separate wards for women and men, and further expansion in 2021 included additional beds for the Reproductive Child Health/Pediatric Hospital.
In the final phase of development in 2022, accommodations for the staff were constructed. Additionally, the clinic was equipped with essential hospital equipment in the same year.

Target Group:

The Dunkwa Kyekyewere Health Center is located in the Upper Denkyira Municipal, Central Region of Ghana, about 20 kilometres away from its capital. The village is surrounded by 29 municipalities.
