Background on Ghana

Ghana has been embracing digital health solutions to enhance healthcare delivery and management for over a decade. With a population of over 30 million and facing various health challenges, such as malaria, HIV/AIDS, and non-communicable diseases, the government’s investment in digital health initiatives has significantly improved access to healthcare services, data management, and communication between healthcare providers and patients. 
Despite the progress made in digital health solutions, Ghana’s digital health system still faces challenges such as limited funding, access to technology and internet connectivity, and a lack of interoperability among digital health systems. However, a strong regulatory framework, a dedicated eHealth policy, and a skilled workforce provide a solid foundation for Ghana’s digital health system.
