If we are to overcome the global challenges of today and tomorrow, we need to work together: to pool our strengths, learn from our experiences and find proven solutions for a more sustainable approach to our environment. GIZ’s projects connecting Ghana and North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) show how successful cooperation for sustainable development can look.


New NRW-Ghana health partnership for more medical specialists in Ghana

There is a shortage of well-qualified specialists in Ghana – especially outside the major cities. The new healthcare partnership between NRW and Ghana aims to address this. It was launched last week. Health stakeholders from Ghana and NRW met in Cologne and planned together how the partnership can be filled with life. A one-month training program for Ghanaian doctors at three university hospitals in NRW will start in September 2024. Further activities such as multiplier training in Ghana are also already being planned for 2024.

The cooperation was placed on an even sounder footing with the signing of a partnership agreement between Ghana and NRW in 2007. This brings together actors at national and sub-national level  as well as companies, higher education institutions and civil society organisations.
