We work together with community leaders in rural Ghana to enable children, families and communities to end poverty.
As the outbreak of COVID-19 continues to grow in Ghana, GHEI is deeply concerned about the impact it could have on vulnerable communities in rural areas of the country. COVID-19 poses an imminent threat to populations who have inadequate access to health services, have limited capacities and opportunities to cope and adapt, and have limited or no access to technologies. Moreover, the outbreak has the potential to erode development gains made over the years.
Therefore, it is imperative to strengthen preparedness and prevention measures to mitigate the ongoing threat of COVID-19 in rural Ghana.
To support preparedness of local health officials and partners in the local municipality, we are partnering with One Day's Wages to implement the Safe Villages Project, a 12-month multifaceted strategy that will save lives and help villages prepare for the health, educational and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our response to COVID-19 is informed by GHEI's substantial expertise in public health work and lessons learned.
