Ghana 2020 - Health & Education

Progress has been made in expanding the coverage and treatment of infectious disease in Ghana. The rollout of public coverage has been central to these achievements, with the private sector also playing a pivotal role, both in terms of contracts with the government and through the operation of private facilities. A new generation of domestic start-ups has also begun to reshape the sector, utilising digital solutions to better address demand. Yet the sector still faces serious challenges, including shortages in medical professionals and the rise of non-communicable diseases. Education reform has been a major priority of the administration of President Nana Akufo-Addo. The government introduced the Free Senior High School policy in September 2017, which was followed by a number of reforms launched in 2019 to improve teacher training, and the establishment of a new national curriculum. Opportunities for future investment exist in the expansion of private sector schooling.
