File Type: PDF | File Size: 433.67 KB

The USAID Systems for Health Project (2014-2019) works with Ghana Health Service (GHS) to scale up evidence-based, high-impact health interventions to improve health outcomes, particularly for women and children. The project works to strengthen vital health systems building blocks, including health financing by enhancing the readiness of GHS to directly access and manage USAID and other donor funds.

Systems for Health works with all 118 Regional and District Health Management Teams (RHMTs and DHMTs) in five of Ghana’s ten regions. Upon initial assessment in 2015, only 18% of R/DHMTs demonstrated the capacity to directly manage donor funds, based on criteria including governance, financial and cash management, procurement processes, asset and inventory management, reporting and program/donor experience.
