SGF empowers Parliament’s Health Committee to promote inclusiveness and hold agencies accountable in delivery of services in health sector

Star Ghana Foundation (SGF) met Parliament’s Select Committee on Health to discuss findings from research it undertook on Rapid assessment of the impact of COVID-19 on health delivery, COVID-19 commodities allocations, and supply as well as Health financing and implications for policy in the health sector.  The one-day strategic meeting sought to, among other objectives, provide evidence to strengthen the capacity of the committee to hold ministries, departments, and agencies to account for ensuring inclusive delivery of health services. Access to timely, relevant, and accessible information is critical to strengthening Parliament’s oversight of public goods and services delivery. The event was organised under the Partnerships Beyond Aid programme funded by the FCDO.  

STAR-Ghana, for over 10 years has been supporting targeted Parliamentary Select Committees’ engagements with citizens and their issues, to help them better represent constituents in their legislative and oversight roles. One of the strategies used by SGF to support parliament to deliver on its mandate and oversight function is through the provision of evidence. Since March 2020, and under its COVID-19 project and Partnership Beyond Aid, STAR-Ghana has supported civil society to generate information around the impact of COVID-19 on health, education, and social protection. Some of the partners it supported include the Christian Health Association of Ghana (GHAG), SEND-Ghana, African Education Watch, and Ghana Developing Communities Association (GDCA)
