Description and results


This project aims to reduce preventable death and illness among women, children and newborns in Ghana, especially the marginalized or vulnerable. By using data-driven innovative approaches, the project seeks to increase health system’s capacity, improve service delivery and strengthen the implementation of health guidelines and policies. Project activities include: (1) developing a competency framework and key performance indicators to complete regular performance appraisals of health managers and providers; (2) using the community scorecard to strengthen community engagement in health service delivery; (3) establishing an innovation hub within Ghana Health Services; (4) supporting 60 health facilities to implement an integrated package of services for improved health service delivery; and (5) creating 40 district dashboards to improve national health data systems. The project expects to support 60 health facilities in 20 districts to improve their performance. The project will pilot four innovations by establishing a hub that will train 200 mentors and build health worker’s capacity to provide quality services. In total, it expects to reach 200,000 women and 500,000 children with improved health care services.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) Improved care provision of essential services package by health care providers and managers; (2) Strengthened community and health facility linkages built through community-based integrated service delivery; and (3) Improved practice of evidence-informed policymaking for equitable, comprehensive health policies.
