On May 13, the United States of America joined the Minister of Gender, Children, and Social Protection, Honorable Cynthia Morrison, to launch guidelines and regulations to strengthen the Ghanaian social welfare system. The use of these tools will regulate residential homes for children and promote family-based care. With funding from the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Department of Social Welfare will use the policy documents to advance the Government of Ghana’s Care Reform Initiative. Launched in 2006, the initiative aims to help families care for their children; prevent unnecessary family-child separation; and promote appropriate, protective, and permanent family care. Members of the Department of Social Welfare, Department of Children, the Central Adoption Authority, and civil society partners joined the Honorable Minister and USAID/Ghana Mission Director, Ms. Sharon L. Cromer, to commemorate the occasion.

April 25, 2019

Today is World Malaria Day with the theme “Zero malaria starts with me”. The United States, through the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) is joining forces with the National Malaria Control Program and other malaria partners to celebrate the encouraging results achieved in the last 10years.  From 2011 to 2016, malaria prevalence in children under five decreased nationally by 8% and from 2014, malaria deaths nationwide have decreased by 73%. However, as we celebrate this life savings impact, we must step up the efforts to fight the disease to ensure that we reach the noble and ambitious objective of “Zero malaria deaths”.
