A study of international return migrants to Ghana

4929 руб.
The literature on international migration in Ghana indicates an extensive research on the emigration of labour who moved out for greener pastures with the economic downturn in the mid-1960s. Meanwhile, paucity of empirical evidence exists on the phenomenon of return migration. That is, while there is growing evidence on the changing dynamics of out-migration from Ghana, characterized by changing origin regions, destination patterns and actors of migration, research on returning migrants remains relatively scarce. This study, therefore, strove to fill a lacuna in the Ghanaian migration literature by providing some quantitative evidence regarding the determinants of return migration of Ghanaian migrants, the nature of their return decision-making process and the socio-economic implications of their return to Ghana. The book is useful to researchers in the field of migration issues, policy-makers and the general public.

Increasing the proportion of births supervised by Skilled Birth Attendants is an internationally agreed goal. However, available data indicate that little progress has been made in Sub-Sahara Africa. Though there is over 80 percent coverage of antenatal attendance in Ghana, there is pervasive maternal service utilization, yet, the underlying factors are poorly understood. Evidence-based data are therefore needed to inform policy formulation and the design of practical solutions to address the existing challenges particularly at the district and community levels. This book therefore, provides scientific evidence that explains the role individual factors play in influencing access and utilization of supervised delivery services in a typical district in Ghana. The book would particularly be useful for policy makers, the academia, as well as community and public health professionals.

Malaria is a persistent public health problem and is the leading cause of death among young African children, killing one child every second. The disease also seriously affects children’s future: they may suffer neurological after-effects and impaired learning ability. Malaria is hyper-endemic in Ghana. It remains a major public health problem, requiring focused interventions including prompt and effective scientific studies. Therefore, this study, applied a binary logistic regression model to analyze predictors influencing malaria in-hospital mortality using inpatient morbidity and mortality returns register from the Tamale Teaching Hospital in the northern region of Ghana. The study comprised five chapters in all. The results showed that there is a linear relationship between malaria mortality and the predictors. Again, it was found that the predictors; referral status, distance, treatment type and length of stay were relevant in predicting malaria mortality. This book, therefore, provides a scientific resource for health personnel, the health ministries, the World Health Organization (WHO) and other stakeholders in the public health sector.

Over the decades Schedule Castes and Schedule Tribes have remained the most deprived group in the highly caste ridden Indian Society. The development of these disadvantaged groups and their assimilation with the larger society has therefore been a matter of great concern for the government and other public bodies, both at the centre and in the states. On the same side with diversity in culture India's performance on infant mortality reduction pales in comparison to that of many other countries in South, Southeast and East Asia. In India where the coverage and completeness of civil registration system is poor and information from this system can not be used to assess fertility and mortality. In such circumstances the only way is to use information from census and then apply some indirect techniques to get the estimates of vital rates at district level. In this book attempt has been made to estimate the level of Infant and Child Mortality for most disadvantage groups i.e. Schedule Castes and Schedule tribes in India through indirect technique at district level using Census and RCH data which might be very useful for policy implications.

We investigated the factors that influence mothers’ use of medically trained services for childbirth in a rural district in the Eastern Region of Ghana using a cross-sectional study. Structured questionnaires were administered to 350 women with children under one year. Key informants who were community opinion leaders and Senior Midwives at health care facilities in the study district were also interviewed qualitatively. Cross tabulation and Chi-square test were the main statistical processes used in analysing the relationships between the study variables. The result showed that the use of antenatal services by the mothers was important for the choice of where to deliver their babies. Mothers who attended antenatal services three times or more were more likely to deliver at the health facilities than those who used lesser antenatal care. Delivery at a health facility was highest among the women who had the autonomy to decide where to deliver. Access factors in terms of economic cost and distance to a health facility also played significant roles in influencing mothers’ delivery behavior. We recommend additional social policies to address maternal health issues in the study district

Can Poverty be eliminated or reduced in Ghana. Ghana Poverty Reduction Strategy (GPRS) has been a major policy that has been embarked by the World Bank and International Monetary Fund as an adjunct to Structural Adjustment Programme imposed on developing countries including Ghana. The Structural Adjustment Programme has been regarded by many economic commentators as a failure because it placed much emphasis on reduction of public spending. This has led to the growth of new emphasis on participatory development in an attempt to reduce poverty. This work analyses the extent of participatory research that has been used in producing the Ghana Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (PRSP) document, and the effectiveness of the different stakeholder views. The Ghana Poverty Reduction was meant to be participatory which would invariably empower the poor to participate in the development processes that affect their lives. Based on Participatory action research and desk study of a district in Ghana, the paper argues that the communities were not properly consulted for the projects that affect their lives. It placed much emphasis on participation as an important tool in research

Chapter I contains the Introduction and review of literature. Chapter II deals with estimating infant and child mortality rates for the districts of India. Chapter III is devoted to estimate the life expectancy at birth for 2001-05. In chapter IV we seek to establish a new relationship between infant mortality and life expectancy at birth. Using this relationship, an attempt has been made to estimate life expectancy at birth for the districts of Assam and some of the districts of the states covered by the Annual Health Survey, 2010-11. In chapter V, a new method of generating one parameter model life tables for India and its major states is developed where life expectancy at birth is the only input. In chapter VI an attempt has been made to estimate the TFR, GRR and NRR for the districts of some selected states of India. In chapter VII, an effort has been made to recapture the scenario of population growth in the districts of Kerala and Assam by estimating the NRR of these districts before and after allowance for migration. In chapter VIII an attempt has been made to build a database software package for comprehensive presentation of the district level demographic measures.

Nigerian Migration to Ghana

5790 руб.
Nigerian migration to Ghana dates back to the caravan period. In the first half of the 20th century, Nigerians were attracted to Ghana by the mines, cocoa plantations, and railway work. Later in the 1960s, they dominated the Ghanaian market place as traders of all manner of goods until they were expelled in 1969. For close to two decades, between 1992 and 2010, there has been a growing desire by Ghanaians towards democratic governance. Consequently, Ghana has experienced widespread immigration, mostly from the West African sub-region, and Nigeria in particular. This book explores Nigerian presence in Ghana and focuses on the history, motivations and associational forms that have emerged in the 21st century to take care of the needs of these migrants in Ghana.

In recent times, considerable advocacy has taken place in both academia and non-academic platforms about solar PV energy technology serving as a panacea to the energy problems of rural populations in developing countries especially, Sub-Sahara Africa, whilst also helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Notwithstanding this great advocacy, the literature on the dissemination of this technology has been incomplete in fostering understanding on the discourses surrounding its low dissemination rates particularly, in Ghana compared to other countries such as Kenya and Zimbabwe; the sustainability of installed solar PV systems; and the usefulness of solar PV in serving the needs of the rural poor. Underpinned by the Social Construction of Technology Theory (SCOT), this book has explored the energy perspectives of Ghana, the dynamics of rural electrification, and the interplay of processes and forces informing the low adoption of solar PV in rural Ghana, compared to Kenya and Zimbabwe. Findings of the book have implications for PV technology supply approaches in rural areas, and should be useful to governments, energy planners, researchers, students and renewable energy companies.

What are the significant issues of female empowerment in Ghana?

3939 руб.
In the third world countries, there is an urgent need for the promotion of equal rights for all especially women. Although there has been a remarkable burgeoning in the female emancipation struggle in Ghana, there still remains an enormous task in achieving equal rights for women. Ghana is a signatory to most of the international charters and protocols on the respect for the rights of women. Notwithstanding this, women are still being discriminated against in the Ghanaian society in several social contexts. This seems paradoxical and the goal of this book has been to explore the mechanisms that function to reinforce the phenomenon of discrimination against women in Ghana. What is discovered is a complex interplay between culture and low level of education among women in Ghana that have kept the fire of discrimination still glowing. To achieve a true equilibrium in terms of the enjoyment of rights between men and women in Ghana therefore demands simultaneous efforts in abolishing certain detrimental and archaic cultural practices, practices that oppress women, and also a promotion of the education of females in Ghana. This demands both national and international efforts.

Impact of World Bank’s SAP and PRSP on Ghana:

6390 руб.
Ghana’s government implemented the following World Bank programmes: SAP and PRSP. This book shows that SAP and PRSP have impacted Ghana in different ways. Sometimes SAP and PRSP worked. Other times both SAP and PRSP had problems and they did not work. SAP in Ghana saw increases in contributions to government revenue including: mining industry contribution of 1, 174.34 billion cedis and the generation of company income tax of 168.9 billion cedis. At the same time it had disadvantages. SAP created more negative impacts or problems in Ghana than PRSP. The influence of neoliberalism on Ghana’s SAP cannot be ignored. This is because the tenets of neoliberalism include the withdrawal of government subsidies, high productivity, the cutting down of government expenditures or spending and privatization. The withdrawal of government subsidy was seen in the Education and Health sectors of Ghana. In the Education sector under SAP, the government cut down its subsidy to the Ghana Education Service. PRSP also impacted Ghana because it attempted to address the problems of SAP. The later developments taking place indicate that the civil society participation in PRSP is having an impact in Ghana.

This book delves into the implications of Ghana''s abortion law for unsafe abortions. More specifically, the book assesses the extent of knowledge of the incidence of induced abortion, the level of awareness and understanding of the abortion law, attitudes towards abortion based on the law, the influence of the law on the practice and finally, an assessment of the country''s abortion law from participants'' point of view.

Development And Malaria Prevention In Rural Ghana

In Sub-Saharan Africa decades of development and malaria control have not significantly eliminated the risk of malaria infections. In 2010, 91% of the 655000 malaria deaths occurred in Sub-Saharan Africa. Why has malaria become such a difficult disease to control despite the fact that it is largely preventable and treatable, and the knowledge to do this exists? Development and Malaria Prevention in Rural Ghana provides a critical exploration of the factors that explain why increased policy attention and resource mobilization to malaria control in Sub-Saharan Africa have not led to malaria eradication or drastic reduction in malaria morbidity and mortality. Based on empirical research in Ghana, the book brings into conversation debates from development studies and public health and highlights the strengths and weaknesses of current policy responses to malaria especially in rural Ghana. The book is intended for senior undergraduate students, graduate students, and teachers interested in issues of development and health in Africa. The book will also be a valuable resource for policy makers and development and healthcare practitioners concerned with the fight against malaria.

In this study of the Health and Nutritional Status of the Hmars of Aizawl District, Mizoram, the findings seem to have certain implications for the application of the demographic transition theory. It is well known that the second stage of demographic transition theory predicts that improvement in standard of living and health facilities results in population growth due to high fertility and low mortality. The poor performance of family planning welfare programmes and/or low practice of family planning methods of contraception enhances the fertility rate or population growth. Fertility rate is still high in the population, thereby suggesting a need for greater political will to implement family planning programmes. The co-existence of under- and over-nutrition (as indicated by BMI) was also seen in the Hmar population. Double burden of under- and over-nutrition exerts considerable impact on the economy and health system in many developing countries. The increasing urbanization, changes in standards of living, dietary patterns and occupational work patterns are the key factors to risks of the epidemic of obesity and associated morbidity and mortality.

Safe drinking water is one of the most critical factors to guarantee long-term population health. In Ghana the increasing pollution of surface water bodies and reservoirs used for the production of drinking water is creating a shift in the phytoplankton composition to mainly cyanobacteria. The World Health Organization (WHO) has showed great concern about the important health implications of cyanobacteria and toxins in potable water production sources across the globe. Africa as a whole and Ghana in particular, where many communities depend on untreated raw water from rivers, streams and ponds as sources of drinking water, gives even greater cause for concern. This book reports on a pioneering work of significance to Ghana and the West African sub-Region. It looks at the species of toxic cyanobacteria and microcystins they produce in some potable water producing facilities in Ghana. It reports of 15 new cyanobacteria species found in Ghana, including the cyanobacterium Cyanogranis ferruginea, reported for the first time in Africa and also records the first case of the hepatotoxins microcystin-LR, YR, RR and LF in Ghana.

Participation in decision-making is the root of democratization, as democratization is widely believed to be rooted in decentralization. As such, citizens’ participation in the decentralization process will bring governance closer to the local control. The Fourth Republican Constitution of Ghana (1992), together with other legislations has provided the framework for the citizens of Ghana to participate in the administration of government through the decentralization process. However, we do not know how the citizens perceive the programme. We need to find the extent to which citizens are participating in the decentralization process and what factors affect the implementation of the programme in the North Tongu District of Volta region. Therefore, the focus of the study was to explore the views and understandings of citizens about Ghana’s decentralization process. The researcher used the case study design for the study. Both questionnaire and interview protocol were used for data gathering. One hundred and six people in the area were conveniently sampled to become respondents in the study. For the method of data analysis, I used tables and percentages.

Access to potable water still remain an illusion to over one billion people which is manifested in high incidence of water and sanitation related diseases such as guinea worm. With the launch of the Guinea Worm Eradication Programme in 1989, interventions such as the provision of potable water and treatment of unwholesome water before use were pursued. Albeit these interventions, the worm is still prevalent in the Savelugu-Nantong District of Northern Ghana. This work investigated why in spite of the huge investment in water and sanitation facilities, as well as education campaigns, the disease is still persistent. The incidence of guinea worm over space does not relate with the distribution of water facilities; it is more preponderant in the south- eastern corridor and in the major communities where there is potable water. This book examines the relationship between water supply and guinea worm infestations and will be useful for water and sanitation sector stakeholders and practitioners such as staff of District Assemblies, Water and Sanitation Teams, District Health Directorate and the Guinea Worm Eradication Programme.
