A Healthy Partnership. Ghana-Denmark 1994-2016

An account of 22 years of life-saving cooperation in the health sector

Summary

The Ghanaian-Danish partnership in the health sector is unique for several reasons: It has lasted more than 20 years; it has been characterized by open and frank dialogue; and, most importantly, it has contributed to impressive results: Under 5- and maternal mortality have been halved, health expenditure in Ghana has increased dramatically, and the number of doctors has more than doubled. In short, Ghanaians have become healthier; they live longer and have access to better health care. But in 2016 Danish support will be phased out. In the 20-paged magazine, “A Healthy Partnership”, freelance-journalist Jesper Heldgaard highlights some of the challenges, successes, and experiences of the partnership in feature articles and interviews with some of the many beneficiaries and key players.
