Expanding Our Impact

Ghana has been one of the most stable democracies in Africa, but its economy has sputtered in recent years due to public deficits and inflation.  In addition, more than a quarter of the approximately 25 million inhabitants of Ghana live below the poverty line.

Abt Associates is working on a wide range of efforts in Ghana, including programs to protect people from malaria, strengthen the country’s health system, evaluate the impact of financial incentives on agriculture, expand clean energy and boost regional and global trade.

In 2017, with SHOPS Ghana’s help, local manufacturer Phyto-Riker, launched the first co-packaged ORS and zinc product for treating childhood diarrhea. Over 20.5 million dispersible zinc tablets were distributed.
