Ghana is among the low- and middle-income countries that are taking steps to achieve universal health coverage (UHC). The performance of primary health care (PHC) systems in these countries and their ability to deliver quality essential health services contributes to this process. This fact sheet provides an overview of Ghana’s progress in integrating one such service: family planning.
Ghana has long been committed to maintaining a strong family planning program as an essential component of the country’s broader development agenda. It has also made admirable progress in PHC service delivery and financing and has taken significant steps to include family planning as part of routine, facility-based care within the PHC system.
