Welcome to the PharmAccess Ghana office

A thriving office in the center of Accra leading solutions and services to strengthen the healthcare market in Ghana.

 

The Ghana office opened in 2012…

…with a vision to increase access to affordable and better healthcare for all Ghanaians. The Ghana office leverages the power of mobile and digital innovations to mobilize public and private resources for the benefit of healthcare providers and patients through a combination of in-country initiatives focused on quality improvement, healthcare financing, supply chain strengthening, technical assistance, impact research and advocacy deployed by a passionate and multidisciplinary team.

PharmAccess’s strategy in Ghana is in line with the agenda of the government for economic self-sufficiency through private sector-led technology-driven development. We aim to address emerging critical challenges in Ghana’s health system and strengthening key state institutions to be efficient and effective at delivering on their mandate to support the realization of Ghana’s UHC 2030 agenda.

Our activities are developed through strong public-private partnerships and include:

  • Providing technical support to the National Health Insurance Authority to be a digitalized data-driven insurer providing financial risk protection to nearly 50% of Ghana’s population.
  • Supporting the Health Facilities Regulatory Agency (HeFRA) towards institutionalization of quality healthcare in Ghana through licensing and accreditation, including SafeCare, at national level
  • Development of a business model for SafeCare licensing with CHAG to connect more people to better healthcare
  • Increasing access to financing by providing healthcare facilities in Ghana with loans and technical assistance through the Medical Credit Fund
  • Strengthening the medicine supply chain in Ghana through Med4All, a digital medicines supply chain platform developed in partnership with the FDA, the CHAG and PharmAccess aimed to improve the quality, access and affordability of medicines in Ghana
  • Developing digital service models for NCD care in together with Ghana’s Ministry of Health and three public hospitals and Luscii.

PharmAccess provides technical assistance (e.g., capacity building, advice, and data analytics) to support the NHIA in its ambition to be a data-driven insurer and knowledge institute that capitalizes on the disruptive potential of technology to create value out of its own data.

Partnerships that make a difference

Ghana is taking major strides towards achieving its Universal Health Coverage (UHC) 2030 agenda including achieving quality health for all, as 35 medical professionals have been trained and certified under a global health quality improvement program: SafeCare. To implement the program, PharmAccess is partnering with the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG), a network of over 300 health provider organizations in the country.

“The SafeCare certification will inspire confidence in patients that they would receive standardized quality of care at CHAG facilities.”
