The G.A.S. Partnership is an exciting and pioneering linkage between a government agency (Ghana Health Service), an NGO (AfriKids) and an NHS trust (University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust).
The purpose of the Partnership is to improve healthcare provision in the Upper East Region (UER) of Ghana primarily through strengthening manpower and promoting skill sharing.
The two overarching goals of the Partnership are:
1. To support GHS in their efforts to strengthen the healthcare system in the Upper East Region of Ghana through workforce capacity building
2. To refresh and enhance the skills of University Hospital Southampton staff so that they can, in turn, provide better care to their patients
The Partnership responds to need, complementing not replicating services already offered in the Upper East Region of Ghana, enhancing the skills of the local medical professionals so they can make a lasting impact on their region. By raising the profile of healthcare in the UER, it is hoped more medical professionals will be attracted to the region, thus amplifying the positive effects seen.
