JSI’s involvement in Ghana began in the 1980s. Currently, the USAID Strengthening the Care Continuum Project supports the Government of Ghana in achieving HIV epidemic control in the Western Region, which has the country’s highest burden of HIV. Working closely with Ghana’s Ministry of Health, the project implements innovative strategies to identify, link and support clients to antiretroviral therapy.
JSI has implemented some of its most comprehensive initiatives in Ghana, including the DELIVER Project and AIDSTAR-One, and has expertise in strengthening Ghana’s maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) sectors. The USAID Ghana Focus Region Health Project worked to increase access to and use of high-quality MNCH services and family planning, as well as engaging in intensive priority HIV and malaria work.
