THE CONTRIBUTION OF TRANSPORT (ROAD) IN HEALTH CARE DELIVERY “A CASE STUDY OF MANKRANSO DISTRICT HOSPITAL IN THE AHAFO ANO SOUTH DISTRICT OF ASHANTI REGION” (Published)

This project seeks to link the contribution of transport to health care delivery. The main objective of the study was to conduct a Strategic analysis on the role of transport in quality health care delivery. A variety of qualitative and quantitative instruments were employed to gather data to respond to the study research questions. The primary data for the study were collected from the respondents through questionnaire administration and interview conducted by the researcher. The study’s findings confirmed the existence of healthcare transport as a supportive service in quality health care delivery but due to the poor road network, few health facilities and high transport cost most household do not access medical treatment. It is also difficult for health workers to embark on outreach programs and be at work on time because of transport infrastructure and services. These have tended to negatively impact on the delivery of healthcare commodities and services for Ahafo-Ano residents. A strand of thought that filters through the discussion is the establishment of a good road network, increase medical outreach and mobile health clinics
