STAKEHOLDER PERCEPTION ON FACTORS INFLUENCING NGO COLLABORATION WITH GOVERNMENT IN HEALTH EDUCATION IN THE TEMA METROPOLIS

ABSTRACT The providers of health education (HE) have generally included nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) and government organisations (GOs). To avoid the duplication of effort and ensure efficiency, it has become necessary for NGOs and GOs to collaborate in the provision of health services. The purpose of this study was to determine stakeholder perception on factors influencing collaboration between GOs and NGOs based on organisations sampled from the Tema Metropolis in Ghana. From the assessable organisations, key informants were sampled using a simple random technique to select a total of sixty (60) respondents with thirty (30) each from the GOs and NGOs. The study identified the key factors that facilitate successful collaboration between NGOs and GOs to include frequent communication, a good purpose and a favourable policy environment along with the roles and responsibilities that characterise an effective collaboration. The study also discusses the major constraints to NGOs and GOs collaboration to include differing institutional goals, incompatible management processes and intrusive stakeholder interest. It concludes with discussions on the strategies that facilitate NGO and GO collaboration relationships to include parity and participative strategies, open and frequent communication and trust among partners. It recommends guidelines for implementation of collaboration projects to include the adoption of joint monitoring and evaluation teams and the signing of MoUs to cover projects.
