UHC Ghana Project

The goal of the UHC Ghana Project was to develop a team of trainers in Ghana from National/Subnational Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) who are capable of providing training on Domestic Health Financing (DHF), Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and Budget Advocacy (BA) to civil society actors, media organizations and elected officials at the national level, and to provide support and mentoring to CSOs engaged in these activities in Ghana. We accomplished this goal in October 2021 with 16 CSO Leaders completing the training.
