Our
Impact

In 2019, the Total Family Health Organisation provided almost 400,000 years of healthy life for its clients, including:

11,000

improved latrines

1.4 million

years of protection from unintended pregnancy for Ghanaian couples

Practice Areas
We Focus On

Modern contraceptive methods are a proven and cost-effective solution for enhanced maternal and child health. In addition, appropriate, accessible and accurate information on these methods prevents unintended pregnancies and contributes to a healthy way of life. With its interventions, Total Family Health Organisation (TFHO) aims to bring contraceptive knowledge closer to those who need it most, helping to fulfill Ghana’s commitment to the FP2020 goals through advocacy and collaboration with various partners.

Both maternal health and child health are a major public health concern in Ghana, and the Ghanaian government has directed resources to increase the quality of life for this group. TFHO’s activities in maternal and child health aim to support Ghana’s vision of improving key health indicators for this group.

Good WASH practices play a major role in preventing water-borne diseases and improving health and nutrition. There are hundreds of WASH-related deaths in Ghana each year, which are created by insufficient access to safe drinking water, open defecation and improper waste disposal. Using its social marketing activities and experience, TFHO’s programs are designed to improve access to WASH products and services and actively engage with its consumers to adopt sanitary behaviors.
