Our Presence in
The Total Family Health Organisation (TFHO), an independent network member of PSI is a non-profit Ghanaian social marketing organization that works to improve the health of Ghanaians through social marketing of products and services. TFHO’s core intervention areas include sexual and reproductive health, maternal health, child health and water, sanitation and hygiene.
In 2019, the Total Family Health Organisation provided almost 400,000 years of healthy life for its clients, including:
years of protection from unintended pregnancy for Ghanaian couples
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.
