About the Ghana NCD Alliance

The Ghana NCD Alliance (GhNCDA) was formed in 2017 and officially registered on 11 January 2018 under the leadership of Vision for Alternative Development (VALD), and with support from the NCD Alliance.

Key members of the GhNCDA are VALD, Alzheimer’s Ghana, Stroke Association Support Network, Breast Care International, Institute of Leadership and Development, and Socioserve-Ghana. It is a network of NGOs working in diverse areas of health and development. The formation was needed due to the rising health burden associated with NCDs in Ghana and the world at large.

The Alliance objectives are:

  • Identify and implement strategies that ensures early detection, quality of care and cost of treatment and care for those affected by NCDs;
  • Strengthen the capacities of civil society, PLWNCDs and development professionals;
  • Support the development and implementation of national plans and policies related to NCDs;
  • Strengthen and build partnerships with governments, other regional and global networks in the implementation of NCDs programmes;
  • Conduct research and share knowledge on NCDs;
  • Promote good relationship between people living with NCDs and health care providers;
  • Hold governments and stakeholders accountable in the implementation of NCDs and related issues.

GhNCDA main activities

The Ghana NCD Alliance has since its inception participated in national and international events. It convened a national stakeholder’s high-level meeting that sought to raise the profile of NCDs and of the UN High-Level Meeting on NCDs in Ghana.

GhNCDA organised a national meeting of PLWNCDs to identify priorities and provide recommendations for Ghana’s Advocacy Agenda of People Living with NCDs.

We have had one-on-one engagements with top government officials and institutions such as the Minister of Health and Minister of Planning, Ghana Health Service, Special Advisor to the President on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), leadership of the Parliament Select Committee on Health, the chair of the Inter-ministerial Committee on SDGs, Food and Drugs Authority, etc. to discuss the importance of NCD interventions and the need for government to prioritise NCDs.

We have also developed NCD policy briefs and NCD awareness material to sensitise and inform policy makers and the general public.

GhNCDA provides a framework where the different actors can strategise and take collective action to reduce and prevent the NCD burden and improve the health of people in Ghana.
