Meet Daniel Mensah, the Executive Director of HealthKeepers Network, a network of entrepreneurial women in rural Ghana who sell quality healthcare products within their neighborhoods in the country’s hardest-to-reach areas—regions where basic health services are severely limited or unavailable. HealthKeepers now has a new, five-year strategic plan to guide its growth in the face of Ghana’s changing donor environment, a result of its work with the Global Health Corporate Champions.
To make real progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, we need more collaboration and communication. That's why the Global Health Corporate Champions initiative is using a unique approach to cross-sector collaboration and addressing the true complexity that accompanies partnership. The U.S. Agency of International Development (USAID) Bureau for Global Health established a framework through its Global Health Fellows Program (GHFP) II, a program implemented by the Public Health Institute in partnership with PYXERA Global—and engaged the expertise found in the private sector to support local health programs.
