Ghana is emerging as a hub for health research and innovation, with several institutions conducting groundbreaking research in areas such as infectious diseases and maternal health (Ghana Health Service). Empowerment for Sustainable Livelihood supports research efforts that address the unique health needs of Ghanaian communities and promote innovation in healthcare delivery. For example, our collaboration with a local university resulted in the development of a mobile health application that provides access to health information and telemedicine services in rural areas, expanding access to care and promoting sustainable livelihoods through technology-driven solutions.

Patient safety incidents occur in approximately 10% of hospital admissions in Ghana, leading to increased morbidity and mortality (WHO). Empowerment for Sustainable Livelihood advocates for quality improvement initiatives and patient safety measures to enhance the quality of healthcare services. For example, our partnership with a teaching hospital resulted in the implementation of a medication reconciliation program, reducing medication errors by 30% and improving patient safety and outcomes.



By working with healthcare providers, policymakers, and community stakeholders, we strive to enhance trust and confidence in the healthcare system, ultimately reducing the risk of medical errors, complications, and unnecessary healthcare costs, and promoting sustainable livelihoods.
