Ghana's Child Protection System Strengthening Initiatives
Evaluation - District Level
After the launch of the Child and Family Welfare Policy in 2015 and the Justice for Children Policy in 2016, the Government of Ghana in collaboration with UNICEF embarked on a workforce strengthening initiative in 20 pilot districts. The Initiative aims to strengthen the capacity of the Social Welfare Actors to implement the policies, with a focus on the Child and Family Welfare Policy using an innovative problem-driven iterative adaptation approach. In 2017 the Social Welfare Actors and allied actors from the pilot districts attended a series of workshops at district, regional and national level to better understand the Policy and reflect on new actions to address identified local child protection problems. Building on district level learning, guidelines were developed to offer a framework of reference for continued implementation of the Child and Family Welfare Policy.
