Residents of Tetegu in the Weija-Gbawe Constituency in Accra, have expressed their disappointment in the Member of Parliament, Tina Mensah, who also doubles as a Deputy Health Minister over her inability to facilitate the completion of a CHPS compound in the area.
The facility has been left at the mercy of the weather, and is now occupied by squatters.
The CHPS project formed part of a national strategy by the then Mahama administration to deliver essential community-based health services including health planning and service delivery within communities, with a primary focus on deprived areas.
Appointees under the Mahama administration supposedly devoted 10 percent of their salaries towards the construction of some CHPS compounds across the country.
But since the inauguration of the new government, nothing has been done about the Tetegu CHPS compound and many others scattered across the country.
