Spotlight on Country Core Group - Ghana

An Interview with Dr. Cynthia Bannerman

Country Core Groups have often been referred to as the “backbone” of the Joint Learning Network. They play an instrumental role in strengthening member country engagement and leadership within the JLN. While existing CCGs vary a great deal in their level of activity, one CCG—the Ghana group—is a shining example of just why country core groups are so important.

The Ghana group is very active. According to Dr. Cynthia Bannerman, who chairs the group, countries face many challenges in implementing universal health coverage and regular open forums among stakeholders are important to discuss these challenges or emerging trends across institutions.

“Information sharing and relationship building is incredibly important since we’re each responsible for carrying out a portion of the activities that contribute to achieving universal coverage,” Dr. Bannerman said.
