Baseline findings presented in Ghana

Laura Ferguson, associate director of the USC Program on Global Health & Human Rights, returned to Ghana in September to discuss and present draft findings of the baseline assessment on human rights barriers to accessing HIV services.

This Global Fund-supported work is carried out in partnership with John Snow, Inc. The baseline assessment covers human rights barriers to accessing HIV services, existing programs to address these and recommendations for scaling up to a comprehensive response to address the barriers nationally.

During this visit to Accra, Dr. Ferguson presented initial findings to a range of key stakeholders, including NGOs, government representatives, service providers, key population representatives and more for their input and discussion around prioritizing interventions moving forward.
