According to a member of the NPP communications team, John Mahama is the worst thing to have happened to Ashanti region in terms of health.
He said during the tenure of Mahama, there was the introduction of an initiative called the “Capitation Grant”.
According to this initiative, an individual had the opportunity to receive special healthcare from one particular hospital.
In a situation where that individual requires further treatment from another hospital, he or she cannot be referred to a different hospital.
He said for close to five years, patients were deprived of the ability to use the National Health Insurance cards because of medical care within the region.
According to the NPP Communicator, this is one major reason why he feels Mahama did nothing to help the health sector in Ashanti region.
