Promoting quality access to mental health care

In Ghana, Persons with Mental Disabilities (PMDs) constitute a vulnerable group. They are often subjected to discrimination, social isolation and exclusion, human rights violations and cultural stigma, which leads to lack of social support and access to health care. For a population of more than 28 million people, there are currently only 16 psychiatrists and 1,558 psychiatric nurses operating in the country (numbers from 2015).

Gender Sensitization Program

A study conducted in 2009 showed that 14% of Ghanian school students were sexually abused. In most cases the students being abused are female. Young girls and women in Ghana are commonly victims of physical, sexual, emotional, and economic abuse.
