GEHIP is a novel study that was focused on health systems strengthening and implementation science in four of Ghana’s most impoverished districts.  The study aimed at improving the quality and intensity of frontline worker care delivery and the coverage of community-based services. As a practical demonstration of achieving universal health care in Africa, the GEHIP trial has important regional significance. The key findings from this study will be presented at this seminar with a panel discussion that will engage in conversation regarding the implications of the findings and their regional and global significance. 

We look forward to seeing you there and joining us for this important discussion.

Light Refreshments will be served.
