The Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG) exists primarily to promote the development and sustainability of Church Health Services anytime, anywhere, and everywhere the need beckons. Over the years, CHAG has kept faith with the people of Ghana and beyond, providing holistic health services in line with our mandate of promoting Jesus Christ’s healing ministry.
We fulfill this core mandate through the promotion of our Christian values and principles of stewardship, accountability, transparency, cooperation and partnership in service provision, advocacy, witness and representation of the ethical and moral conscience of the health sector. As a not-for-profit organization, CHAG seeks to uphold the dignity of the human person at all times especially the poor, neglected, deprived and marginalized segments of the society. In pursuance of these ideals, we continue to explore a host of innovative and sustainable projects and programmes of wide social impact and national appeal. For instance in the 1990s, CHAG pioneered and piloted a community-based health insurance scheme that culminated into the present National Health Insurance Scheme. Today, CHAG is pursuing health system strengthening programmes and projects to build capacity for all its 288 Member Institutions spread in all the 10 Regions of Ghana.
In addressing the gaps in national health outcomes, we seek cooperation and collaboration with Local and International Development Partners in improving access to affordable quality health services to needy constituents. Whilst local needs and imperatives remain our focus, we align our plans and programmes with the priorities of the health sector of the State including the post MDG development agenda and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with its comprehensive targets and indicators.
At the moment, we are confronted with several challenges. There are funding gaps for sustainable and innovative interventions in all the nine health system building- service delivery, human resources for health, health financing, health technologies, health information, leadership and governance, community ownership and participation, partnerships for health development, and research for health.
Accordingly, we seek development partnership in all avenues aimed at improving the cause of humanity. As the second largest provider of health services in Ghana, CHAG offers a significant level of hope for all generations; unborn, children, young, mothers, adult, the aged and the vulnerable groups in the society.
As we work tirelessly to ensure healthy lives and promote the well-being for all at all ages, we invite your inspirational ideas, support, direction and prayers!
Welcome on board!
