Chiefs in the Ahafo Region have praised Dr. Kwabena Boakye Boateng, the region’s director of health, for putting into place effective policies that have improved the caliber of healthcare services offered to locals.
The Adontehene of Hwidiem, Nana Baffour Kyei Anaafi, reportedly told Adom News that prior to his assignment to the region, locals had difficulty getting access to high-quality medical treatment since there were no effective policies in place.
The Adontenhene said that during the director’s term, the area saw notable advancements in the healthcare sector on behalf of Ahafo chiefs at the departure ceremony for Dr. Boateng in Goaso.
Nana Baffour Kyei Anaafi used Dr. Boateng’s actions and careful oversight as an illustration, noting how Ahafo had less trouble fighting COVID-19 than other regions as a consequence.
Additionally, he highlighted how Dr. Boateng promoted friendly working connections with his team and other regional stakeholders, a beneficial trend that had not previously been observed in the healthcare industry.
Additionally, Dr. Boateng’s contributions have considerably improved the quality of healthcare services in Ahafo, resolving long-standing issues, according to William Frimpong Bonsu, member of the Ghana Health Service Council for the Ahafo and Western North Regions.
While presiding over the event, Most Reverend Peter Kwaku Atuahene, the head of the Roman Catholic Diocese in Goaso, advised the incoming Regional Health Director for Ahafo to build positive relationships with the team and other stakeholders to ensure effective service delivery, much like Dr. Boateng.
He emphasized that failure to do so would hinder the success of the new Regional Health Director.
