USAID Systems for Health - Project Overview
File Type: PDF | File Size: 249.54 KB
The USAID Systems for Health is working with the Ghana Health Service (GHS) to strengthen efforts to reduce preventable child and maternal deaths, reduce unmet need for family planning services, reduce childhood mortality and morbidity from malaria, and improve the nutritional status of children under five and pregnant women. The project enhances vital health-system building blocks while maximizing service coverage. It promotes Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS), strategic behavior change communication, and targeted demand generation.
URC and its partners share a common vision: By 2019, Ghana’s health system will be sufficiently robust that the government and its health workforce will be able to sustain equitable access to, demand for, and use of high-quality, high-impact health services in partnership with the communities they serve and with reduced external support. The Systems for Health project runs from July 2014 to June 2019 and targets 5 regions in Ghana: Greater Accra, Central, Western, Volta, and Northern.
