Ghana

Launched in 1998, IICD’s Ghana country programme targets health, education and economic development.

For over 10 years, IICD has worked with local partners to help farmers, teachers and health workers improve lives through ICT. In health, IICD is helping a local foundation to set up a monitoring system to collect data on the poor use Ghana’s National Health Insurance programme. We’ve also set up computer centres at rural health centres to create a pool of multimedia health information.

In economic development and education, IICD has helped set up 10 community information centres in rural Northern Ghana to serve as electronic libraries and provide business services. We also help tradesmen and women learn essential business skills to help create viable small businesses in rural areas. IICD has helped farmer organisations use multimedia to spread good farming practices. And market price systems have been put in place to help farmers earn more from their crops.

IICD reached 188,000 people in its Ghana programme in 2010, including 76,000 users of the training and ICTs in our 11 programmes.

We support the national ICT4D network in Ghana, GINKS. Established in 2002, they were the first platform of its kind in Ghana. They are the leading support organisation in the country for sharing knowledge, lobbying and advocating for ICTs in development.
