Ghana

JSI has implemented some of its most comprehensive initiatives in Ghana, including MotherCare, the DELIVER Project, BASICS, and AIDSTAR-One. JSI’s involvement in Ghana began in the 1980s when it launched the ENTERPRISE Project, the USAID-funded global effort to increase access to family planning services through private sector health providers. Since then, JSI has implemented projects in child survival, environmental health, immunization, HIV&AIDS, family planning and malaria and has continued to improve health outcomes and foster healthy communities in Ghana.

In 2009, JSI launched the Ghana Focus Region Initiative, which worked across broad-based health areas, including family planning, maternal and child health and is using performance-based financing for public sector partners, with the goal of improving the health status of communities in three focus regions of Ghana (Greater Accra, Central, and Western regions).
