This project concerns the upgrading of six existing primary healthcare facilities (‘sites’) in six marginalized, rural districts in the Western region of Ghana. The locations include the towns of Akontombra, Elubo, Bogoso, Nsuaem, Wassa Dunkwa, and Mpohor.
The project aims to improve access to quality health care in rural and marginalized areas by developing functional health infrastructure and addressing both the need for physical infrastructure & equipment (‘hard ware’) as well as support for quality driven and results oriented health care delivery (‘software’), tailored to local health needs and priorities.
