Ghanaian society remains largely patriarchal, and women and girls are unable to openly discuss or access health support for topics like puberty, menstruation, and contraception and family planning. As a result, teenage pregnancies and infant mortality rates remain high. Women are also most often responsible for their family’s health, from treating minor injuries to ensuring the family has the correct immunisations and is well nourished. Join us in Ghana to help create safe spaces for women and girls, and to provide knowledge and support that helps challenge gender inequalities and reduces women’s health concerns.
