The Government of Canada has contributed US$ 8 million as part of a strategic partnership with the Government of Ghana and UNICEF to strengthen lifesaving health, nutrition and sanitation services for children and women.
Mr Kati Csaba, High Commissioner of Canada to Ghana, said: “It is clear that women and girls are being disproportionally affected by the pandemic. Canada is proud to support UNICEF and the Government of Ghana in addressing gender inequalities in their work to prevent and respond to COVID-19. This will help us all achieve the ambitious targets set out through the Sustainable Development Goals.”
Global Affairs Canada leads the delivery of Canada’s international and humanitarian assistance and through its Feminist International Assistance Policy, Canada works with its partners to promote gender equality and empower women and girls to help eradicate poverty and build a more peaceful and prosperous world.
