Overcoming Health Sector Bottlenecks in Ghana through EQUIST
Community Systems Foundation technical staff collaborated with UNICEF and the Ministry of Health, Ghana to link the District Health Information System (DHIS) to EQUIST, import current data at the district level and to build national capacity on EQUIST tools.
In 2018, CSF conducted two capacity-building workshops with the Ministry of Health, Ghana on EQUIST. In October, CSF assisted the Ministry with linking their current health management information system with EQUIST and in December, CSF assisted the Ministry with updating all available data at the national and district levels. Providing robust health data collection and dissemination, EQUIST enables counterparts in Ghana to now make equitable health assessments to overcome bottlenecks at the national and district level.
