The regions in the north of Ghana have a high prevalence of anemia among children under five, and pregnant and non-pregnant women of reproductive age. Recognizing the limited anemia screening capacity at Ghana Health Service (GHS) facilities, USAID, through the SPRING and RING projects, distributed HemoCue® devices to these facilities in the Northern, Upper East, and Upper West Regions of the country.
