Newborn and Child Health 2017
File Type: PDF | File Size: 197.68 KB
The USAID Systems for Health project collaborates closely with the Ghana Health Service (GHS) to carry out evidence-based neonatal, and child health interventions. These interventions are focused on improving provider competency and facility readiness to prevent and manage newborn and childhood morbidity and mortality.
In 2017, Systems for Health made it a priority to support GHS to deliver on-site mentoring to providers and facility teams who had previously been trained via the project. Mentoring included post-training follow-up visits, shared learning, supportive supervision, and internships to improve the quality of clinical care. To maximize and sustain impact, Systems for Health infused activities with quality improvement (QI) approaches and engaged leaders and managers.
