Driving Innovation for Improved Maternal and Child Health in Rural Ghana

In Ghana, the number of private maternity homes (PMHs) - an important provider of maternal and child health care in rural areas - has steadily declined over the past decade. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Saving Maternity Homes in Ghana, Innovate for Health project focused on revitalizing PMHs to expand access to quality maternal and child health services.

Engaging the Private Sector to Employ Youth in Honduras

In Honduras, young people sometimes find it is difficult to be hired, as employers discriminate against former gang members, citizens with ties to gangs, and even people living in communities with known gang activity. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Empleando Futuros project is working with the private sector in Honduras to break these stereotypes and ensure that the project equips young people with the skills that the labor market needs.

Gender and Malaria: The Overlooked (but Obvious) Connections

Inequalities between women and men result in different levels of exposure and vulnerability to disease, different responses to ill-health, different health outcomes, and different consequences. In Uganda, where malaria is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality, Banyan Global is addressing the overlooked but obvious connections between malaria and gender, as part of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded Malaria Action Program for Districts (MAPD) in Uganda.
