From 2007 to 2013, FANTA collaborated with the Ghana Ministry of Health, the Ghana Health Service, and other nutrition stakeholders to strengthen nutrition programs and services and integrate them into the health system. FANTA’s work focused on the provision of technical assistance in the areas of community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM); nutrition assessment, counseling, and support (NACS); and maternal and child health and nutrition. This report provides a summary of achievements and results in Ghana in these three areas, challenges that were addressed, and recommendations for future programming.
