Danida's involvement in the Ghanaian health sector 1994-2015

The Danish Embassy in Ghana is proud to launch a study, documenting Danida's 22 years in the Ghanaian health sector.

Denmark has supported the health sector in Ghana since 1994. Throughout the years, Danida has advocated for a strong pro-poor focus and advocated for primary health care interventions aimed at the poorest Ghanaians in the most remote areas and with the highest mortality rates. Since the first health sector support programme, the assistance has gradually moved from a project approach to sector wide approach and sector budget support (SBS). Danida has all the way valued a strong engagement in the policy dialogue on issues of key strategic importance to the sector development and to Danida.


Danida support to the health sector will end in 2016. The experience from the Ghanaian-Danish health partnership is worth documenting and learning from. The Danish Embassy in Ghana therefore commissioned health systems specialist Dr. Andreas Bjerrum and freelance-journalist Jesper Heldgaard to highlight some of the challenges, successes, beneficiaries and key players. Not in the form of a traditional review or evaluation, but through a documentation study comprising of a technical report, an e-paper (both in Danish and English) and five short films.
