With funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and others, Jhpiego has worked in Ghana for two decades to support the Government of Ghana’s capacity to improve the health of women and their families. Currently, Jhpiego is implementing the following programs in Ghana:
- Under USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP), Jhpiego is working to strengthen services for malaria, HIV, nutrition, family planning and maternal, child and newborn health. This work emphasizes strengthening and building the capacity of pre-service education institutions and supporting the implementation of Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS), a network of community-based nurses and midwives who provide care to local communities.
- With funding from the Jubilee Partners (a consortium of Tullow Oil, Kosmos Energy, Anadarko Petroleum, Ghana National Petroleum Company and PetroSA), Jhpiego is improving and expanding access to frontline primary health care for nearly one million residents in the Western Region by strengthening the CHPS system.
- With funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Jhpiego is implementing a project to reduce newborn mortality in Ghana through low-dose, high-frequency training.
