Ghana

A predominantly agricultural country with a population of 25 million, Ghana is rich with natural resources, yet poverty and poor health persist. Cultural norms and barriers such as understaffed and undersupplied clinics prevent many from accessing basic health needs, including family planning services. Misinformation about contraceptives also keeps many women from seeking family planning.

From 2006 to 2014, EngenderHealth helped expand access to family planning and contraceptive choice in Ghana. We trained health care providers to deliver high-quality family planning services, which included a focus on long-acting and permanent methods of contraception. Our work increased the availability of family planning services and comprehensive abortion care at all levels of the health care system, from community clinics to hospitals. We also made great strides in engaging men as reproductive health partners and supporters. Prior to 2006, EngenderHealth worked to expand HIV and AIDS prevention and treatment, particularly by integrating HIV prevention with maternal health and family planning services.

By respecting community values, traditions, and beliefs while increasing contraceptive use and improving health outcomes, EngenderHealth helped to make lasting positive changes in the Ghanaian public health system and transformed the lives of thousands of Ghanaian women and girls.
