Quality Health Partners (QHP), a health project in Ghana funded by USAID and the government of Ghana, has launched its website www.ghanaghp.org in Accra to share information on its activities on reproductive and child health initiatives with partners in the health sector.
The website has materials generated since the implementation of the project in mid-2004. It has links with three other bilateral projects, the Community based Health Planning and Services Technical Assistance (CHPS-TA project), the Ghana Sustainable Change Project (GSCP) and Strengthening HIV/AIDS Response Partnerships (SHARP Project), which are also being funded by the USAID and the government of Ghana.
The four projects are being implemented in the country in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, The Ghana Health Service (GHS) and other public and private health agencies.
In his remarks at the launch of the website, the Project Director of QHP, Mr Richard E. Killian, said the website was meant to be a useful tool for partners in the health sector in accessing information on the projects's activities.
He said apart from that, the website had links to the GHS website and would soon be accessible from the GHS website, thereby facilitating access to information at all times.
Mr Killan described the website as a quality resource for all in sharing information and interaction.
The USAID Mission Director for Ghana, Ms Sharon Crommer, on her part, described the development of the website for the project as a milestone which gave evidence of the modern partnerships that the USAID was endeavouring to advance in Ghana.
