The situation where women who use and practice family planning methods are seen as whores or prostitutes are things of the past and unacceptable in our society. This was shared by the director of health services who called on husbands, communities to encourage women who use family planning such that they can have control over their lives. Husbands who are in doubt can seek education from health personnel but not antagonize their wives. The district Health Director for Sissala East Mr Alex Bapula in addition lamented the high rate of children giving birth to children in our various hospital facilities across the Sissala east and its environs, reviewing the last 2014 to 2017 medium term development plan performance review on 19th April, 2017 activities at the district conference hall. The district health director gave a health report about the district where he, made this revelations known to various stakeholders in attendance, he said, looking at the trend analysis, Children giving birth is on the rise.

Mr. Alex therefore called on parents, teachers and other stakeholders to take good care of their children so that they do not also gave birth to children. “Young mothers aged between 14years to 17 years who visited our facilities between January and December 2016 were 309 which is 11.5% of total deliveries. These are people who became pregnant and accessed antenatal care.” This is disturbing to all he bemoaned the situation. The district director was also not happy about 52% acceptance of family planning in the district and asked for it to be improved particularly in the communities where women who used family planning were seen as whore is unacceptable.

Outmoded Socio-cultural practices such as keeping pregnant women long hours in the house on the basis of ‘telling the truth’ and the overly reliance on TBAs sometimes affect health of women in labour. Bad road network across the district and poor state of most health infrastructure facilities with CHPs lacking basic logistics is affecting quality health care delivery.

According to the district development planning Officer, Madm Easther Abaching the review is to update the district profile by tracking performance, look at areas they have fallen short, what needs to be done, and make recommendations for the 2018 to 2021 medium term development plan. It is a forum organized by the Assembly to interact with former DCEs, heads of departments, assembly members, NGOs and other stakeholder where heads of departments present reports on their activities, achievements, targets met, way forward and challenges, She added
