Tackling Health System Constraints in Ghana and Guinea

In the past ten years, USAID’s maternal and child survival efforts have helped save the lives of more than five million children and 200,000 women in 25 priority countries.

Despite this progress, more than 15,000 children and 830 women still die every day from preventable causes.

On June 19th from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the George Washington University’s City View Room, health system specialists from two USAID-supported countries, Ghana and Guinea, shared their experiences around how interventions at different levels of the health system are working to address common health system challenges in order to ensure equity, coverage, quality, and efficiency of reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health services.
