The Ghana National Household Registry (GNHR) is a Government of Ghana initiative, part funded by the World Bank, with the aim of developing a national database that can be used by multiple organisations and institutions. This includes programs for social development, poverty reduction, demographic expectations, healthcare, school systems, etc.

Through a customized version of the Insyt platform, the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection achieved its objective for GNHR which is to create a single registry in Ghana that will provide three distinct advantages:

  • A targeting process that is inclusive, transparent and fair
  • A reduction of the duplication of various Social Protection programmes especially in the selection of beneficiaries
  • Improved coordination of interventions across the ministries, departments and agencies. This will enhance the efficiency and effectiveness amongst the numerous social protection programmes in Ghana.
