Integrated National ICT for Health and Development Forum

Ghana is an innovator in health systems, with the early deployment of Community-based Health Planning and Services (CHPS), National Health Insurance, national-scale Community Health Workers, and telemedicine. In view of the advances in Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) for health, Ghana can become one of the first few countries in the world to implement a comprehensive, state-of-the-art ICT platform for health and create unique ID numbers for all patients in Ghana as a sustainable means for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Following the adoption of the SDGs, ICT has become a forefront solution in achieving the health and development goals.
