PRIME II Technical Reports
Most PRIME II Technical Reports detail specific reproductive health care interventions, describing the context, methodology and results of a PRIME project and recommendations from its evaluation. Other reports focus on findings from needs assessments conducted prior to a training intervention or document follow-up studies that ascertain how well health care providers have retained the knowledge and skills they acquired during training. Research studies testing new approaches to service delivery were sometimes published as PRIME technical reports, often with implications for health care policies in particular countries.
An Assessment of the Impact of PRIME interventions on the Training Capacity and Reproductive Health Service Delivery in Ghana (May 2000)
Report No. 20
Since 1995, PRIME has initiated a series of interventions in Ghana, including formulation of Health Policy and Standards Protocols, promotion of public-sector collaboration, development of training materials, introduction of a self-directed learning model for service providers in remote areas and decentralization of postabortion care. This study assesses the impact of those interventions.
