Women are the heartbeat of our nation
Women are the backbone and heartbeat of our nation. We have provided gender-based resource centres in market areas. Our gender equality legislative initiatives have included affirmative action, property rights of spouses, domestic violence and human trafficking. Providing a strong legal framework that women can rely on for support is crucial to our success as a nation and as women.
We’ve seen more and more women taking their rightful place in society at all levels, from government to business, from our schools to our homes and families. Achieving our vision of Transforming Ghana cannot be done without the involvement and commitment to our women.
Over the next four years, we will expand on social interventions and introduce additional initiatives to transform our society. We will identify vulnerable people to be empowered as business owners and increase our LEAP beneficiaries by 350,000.
Registration of vulnerable people on the NHIS will continue, enabling kayayei, the elderly and persons with disabilities improved access to quality healthcare. Child-headed households, lepers, the aged and urban poor will also be targeted for social protection interventions. We will change the lives of our citizens.
