This report highlights important trends in key population, family planning, and health indicators in Ghana over the past two decades. In particular, the report addresses the prevailing demographic situation and describes trends in fertility, family planning, maternal and child health as well as infant and child mortality. It was prepared with the primary objective of providing information needed by policy makers and programme administrators to assess the current situation and to design more effective population, family planning, and maternal and child health programmes.
