Background and Rationale
Healthcare workers are at the forefront of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) emergency response. They are exposed to different hazards that put them at high risk of infection and are likely to experience physical and mental fatigue and stigma. With the continued spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, health systems in Ghana and around the world are working at full capacity, and this increases the risks for both health workers and the most vulnerable populations, including persons with disability who may face further barriers to access the health care and services they need.
The HFFG/The PsyKForum Consortium has received funding from Options Consultancy Services under the Ghana Somubi Dwumadie Project to provide Psychosocial Support to assist health workers to take care of their emotional and mental wellbeing and to ensure they are supported to provide care to people with disabilities, including people with mental health disabilities.
This Consultancy is to help determined the Psychosocial Needs of Health Workers on the frontlines of Ghana’s Covid-19 response in different settings and facilities within the health system (in the aforementioned Regions) as a precursor to the development of Psychosocial interventions to address identified needs.
