Finance Jobs in Ghana

When Prof. Joep Lange founded PharmAccess in 2001, he was determined to turn his groundbreaking scientific research on triple-combination drug therapy into action. His drive brought life-saving AIDS treatment to those who needed it most. Joep’s vision of increasing access to affordable and better healthcare for people in sub-Saharan Africa is still at the heart of what we do.

Building on this work on the front lines of HIV/AIDS treatment, our focus has broadened to making healthcare finance and delivery more effective and more inclusive. We pioneer innovations that explore new directions and provide real world solutions in order to reverse the vicious cycle that stifles progress. We mobilize public and private resources for the benefit of doctors and patients through a combination of health insurance, loans for healthcare providers, quality standards, provider services, health analytics and mHealth innovations, that have been tested in our mHealth lab.
