By using data-driven innovative approaches, the project seeks to increase health system’s capacity, improve service delivery and strengthen the implementation of health guidelines and policies. Project activities include: (1) developing a competency framework and key performance indicators to complete regular performance appraisals of health managers and providers; (2) using the community scorecard to strengthen community engagement in health service delivery; (3) establishing an innovation hub within Ghana Health Services; (4) supporting 60 health facilities to implement an integrated package of services for improved health service delivery; and (5) creating 40 district dashboards to improve national health data systems. The project expects to support 60 health facilities in 20 districts to improve their performance.
