Ghana: Ghana Health Service

The Family Health Division of Ghana’s Health Service received a donation of 1,000 LNG IUS from the ICA Foundation starting in December 2007, in efforts to introduce and reposition long-term methods within the contraceptive method mix.

LNG IUS distribution took place in eleven public- and not-for-profit-sector distribution centers. In 2009, the Family Health Division partnered with Population Council and Engender Health to evaluate client knowledge and acceptability of LNG IUS use, service-provider training, affordability and accessibility. These case study findings assisted the Foundation in understanding LNG IUS client-base and provider perspectives.

Ghana: Marie Stopes International

Collaboration between the ICA Foundation and Marie Stopes International in Ghana began in 2008 with a total of 2.500 devices provided, alongside training and educational materials. These LNG IUS were incorporated into MSI’s contraceptive method mix throughout clinics and mobile outreach clinics across the country.
