Commitments

When maternal mortality was declared a national emergency across Ghana, the government recognized family planning as a multisectoral issue with benefits beyond health, and took action. Since the government’s original family planning commitment in 2012, the number of stakeholders who work to expand quality FP services has grown to include both public and private sectors, civil society including faith-based organizations, professional guilds, and the media. Ghana has made significant strides to make services and methods available to all: by establishing a legislative instrument to include FP in services provided under its national health insurance in 2017 and by making FP services and commodities free of charge in its public health facilities. Ghana continues to increase the number of its modern contraceptive users with improved provider training, expanded method mix, and demand creation for FP to ensure women and girls are healthier.
