    Ghana: CONWAC Resigns from CCM

    The Coalition of NGOs for Women and Children (CONWAC), in Ghana, has resigned from the Country Coordinating Mechanism (CCM) of the Global Fund. CONWAC maintains that the health issues of women, youth and children have not attracted CCM funds hence CONWAC’s withdrawal from the mechanism.

    A statement released by the National President of CONWAC, Mrs. Abundant Hayford Aggrey, said, ‘Young people are dying from AIDS and pregnant women infecting their babies with HIV, and more young girls are giving birth due to limited access to reproductive health facilities. Many civil society organisations lack funds to continue with educational campaigns and research in health issues such as AIDS, TB, malaria and many others. We see that CCM Ghana has failed our health system squarely’.
