GhanaJSI 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.
JSI is supporting and advancing community programs in more than 30 countries that seek to improve local health services, especially those related to family planning.
The USAID DELIVER PROGRAM helps the Ghanaian government reduce the high malaria infection and mortality rates in the country by establishing an efficient and reliable supply chain of antimalarial drugs.
SPRING is scaling up high-impact nutrition practices and policies by providing technical support on preventing stunting and maternal and child anemia, linking agriculture and nutrition, and changing behavior through communication.
The USAID | DELIVER PROJECT uses mobile phone technology to strengthen the supply chain of health commodities in Tanazania, Ghana, Liberia, and Zambia.
