DANFA: PREGNANCY SCHOOL TO HELP ADDRESS MATERNAL DEATHS ISSUES.
As part of its efforts of combating maternal deaths which has been claiming innocent lives in the country, Danfa Health Centre public medical clinic in Accra, has taken a judicious step by initiating a Pregnancy School.
This laudable initiative is aimed at equipping pregnant women and mothers with the relevant knowledge pertaining to maternal and child health care. Mrs. Aseye Apetsi, Senior Physician Assistant In-Charge of Danfa Health Centre, who made this known to Ghanamediaworld, in exclusive interview explained that, the school also assist the pregnant women to make right decisions about their health and also overcome barriers that prevent them from having access to quality maternal health services. According to the Senior Physician Assistant, Danfa Health Centre took this giant step as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility of helping to reduce maternal mortality which has been retarding national development in the country. This she said, as a result of the education, cases relating to maternal mortality have declined.
The School which started with 26 pregnant women; has now exceeded to hundred (100) participants.

Mrs. Aseye Apetsi however seized the opportunity to advise men to endeavour to encourage their wives to attend the Pregnancy School and also accompany them whenever they are visiting the hospital. Danfa Health Centre has been noted for their quality service delivery when it comes to handling maternal related issues. She appealed to the authorities to, respond to the logistic needs of the centre to help ensure efficient service delivery. However she cited the absence of an ambulance as major a challenge hindering effective emergency health care delivery for the people. Since referrals to Dodowa, Pentecost, 37 Military and Ridge Hospitals were always done by taxis and private vehicles of staff which sometimes compounded the patients’ complications.
The Danfa Health Centre is situated in Danfa, a community of more than 11,000 people in the La-Nkwantanang-Madina Municipality in the Greater Accra Region. The Health Centre is also accessed by adjoining communities which are Otinibi, Adoteiman, New Adoteiman, Kweiman, Ayi Mensah and Ghana Flag. More so, the Danfa Health Centre emerged from the Danfa Comprehensive Rural Health and Family Planning Project which was a service, research and training project designed to help find answers to health problems and to establish realistic methods of delivering effective health and family planning services in rural Ghana.
