The Report: Ghana 2022 Health & Education

Ghana’s health sector has made significant progress over the last two decades, with access and insurance coverage growing since the introduction of the National Health Insurance Scheme. The Covid-19 pandemic exposed some long-standing weaknesses in the system, most notably the lack of hospitals and larger medical centres outside big cities. But the pandemic also pushed Ghana to forge ahead with digitalisation efforts, improving online access to medical services and digitalising records. Digitalisation is also on the rise in the education sector, notably with the government’s Education Strategic Plan 2018-30, supported by high public spending on education. Greater oversight and reporting by new government institutions and accreditation boards are expected to improve the quality of schooling at all levels, as well as support crucial areas such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

This chapter contains an interview with Delese Mimi Darko, CEO, Food and Drugs Authority.
