Prof. H.S. Opare-Addo
Head of Directorate


The Obstetrics & Gynaecology directorate has six wards of which three are designated as labour wards. The three labour wards are general, official and high risk wards. The wards in the directorate have a bed capacity of 160. The average turnover per bed is 118. The average length of stay in the ward is 4 days with a bed occupancy rate of 132%.

Specialist clinics in asthma in pregnancy, sickle cell clinic and diabetes mellitus commenced in 2008. Stringent quality assurance measures have been adopted to ensure the discharge of uncomplicated major surgical cases within five days.

 

Maternal Mortality Audits
The Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) as a policy requires audits to be conducted on all maternal deaths occurring within the hospital. It includes

the examination of the standards of care given, parity and age of deceased, gestational age and the cause of death. A total of 27 maternal deaths were examined in 2008.

The commonest causes of death include Eclampsia, Malignant of cervix and Post partum haemorrhage. Majority of these deaths occurred less than 24 hours upon arrival in KATH.

Family Planning
Family planning services are essential not only for its health benefits but even important in socio-economic and cultural contexts. There is therefore the need to ensure that these services are readily available and easily accessed. In acknowledging this, the Public Health unit works in close collaboration with the Family Planning Unit to identify trends in family planning uptake and to devise ways of improving the services rendered to clients accessing these services.

Family Planning services are comprehensively organised by the Family Planning unit of the directorate. Services offered include counselling, provision of contraceptives and performance of surgical procedures for contraception. The unit also offers screening services for cervical cancer.

Despite the wide variety of methods available, data from 2002 indicates a higher preference for injectable contraceptives and the combined oral contraceptive pill. Compliance and convenience may be key factors in the preference of these methods.
