At the end of 2013 an estimated 189,930–206,280 adults and 34,560–36,250 children were living with HIV in Ghana. There is strong evidence to suggest a disproportionately higher HIV prevalence among certain key population groups, such as men who have sex with men (MSM) and female sex workers (FSWs). Ghana’s epidemic continues to evolve. The USAID- and PEPFAR-supported Health Policy Project (HPP) partnered with the Ghana AIDS Commission (GAC) to conduct a focused analysis of the future effectiveness of HIV prevention in the country related to possible funding from external partners. This report offers information on the targets and highlights cost-effective decisions Ghana can make over the coming years. It comes at an opportune time as the country’s current National Strategic Plan (NSP) for HIV and AIDS comes to a close in 2015.
