The MP who was a former deputy Central Regional Minister indicated this at an event to unveil a medical van to her constituents Wednesday at Agona Faahwia.

Health care Van

She said, the van was expected to provide residents in deprived areas within the constituency access to health care.

According to her, the living conditions of the elderly in society are a reflection of how society cares for them hence it is incumbent on all to care for the aged in their families and communities at large.

Providing Health care

The health project was supported by UNICHEM Ghana Limited and Vision Allies Health Institute, which are committed to supporting rural communities to have access to health care.

She prayed, Smiled and shouted.. The Maame Pokuah Health Scheme (MPHS) is still moving from Village to Village providing Health care and medication. She’s glad the Scheme is being supported by all especially GOD.

She gladly smiled when this young lady who was very sick could be treated, adviced and discharged two hours after the Health TEAM put all their expertise to play.

Thank you, her MPHS TEAM….Thank GOD for everything as always…

AWESOME GOD waoooo … Our GOD is good always.

She enumerated that the erstwhile government has instituted a legal framework through the National Ageing policy, the Eban welfare card for the elderly and the inclusion of the Elderly who are aged 65 and above unto the LEAP programme.

Other initiatives of the former government include the creation of Aged desk at Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection and the registration of over 25, 000 aged free of charge on the National Health Insurance Scheme as some of the initiatives to cater for the aged.

The former Deputy Central regional Minister called for an all stakeholder approach to care for the aged who are repository of knowledge and custodians of the nation’s cultural values instead of waiting till they become helpless.
