The Health Policy Project, in collaboration with the National Population Council (NPC) of Ghana, supported the development of a RAPID application for the Volta region in Ghana. The NPC, comprising governmental and nongovernmental organizations, focuses on the state of family planning in Ghana and the need for more support and funding for the national family planning program. “RAPID” stands for “Resources for the Awareness of Population Impacts on Development,” and it is a tool designed to help policymakers understand the relationships between fertility, population growth, health, education, agriculture, and economic growth. The presentation uses RAPID projections to highlight the impact of Ghana's population growth on national development and its ability to provide education, health, and nutrition to all its citizens. It also highlights the policies the government must put in place to benefit from the demographic dividend.
