Ghana is the world's second largest cocoa producer behind Ivory Coast, and Africa's biggest gold miner after South Africa. It is one of the continent's fastest growing economies and has made major progress in the achievement of growth. Significant progress has been made in poverty reduction. In fact, Ghana is the first country in Sub-Saharan Africa to achieve the Millennium Development Goal 1, which is the target of halving extreme poverty. And, Significant progress has been made in Goal 2 which is to achieve universal primary education. Over the past few years because strategies towards improved access to education such as school feeding programme, capitation grant and free school uniforms. However, Goal 3 has not yet been achieved and it is still a while away from being so but Ghana are still working hard to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women. It is the same with Goal 4 to reduced child mortality rates and even though child mortality has not been reduced to 41 per 1000 live births Ghana has still made an improvement, under-five mortality rate has reduced from 122 in 1990 to 74 per 1000 live births in 2010. Although evidence shows that there has been a significant reduction child mortality rates in recent times, it is highly unlikely that the 2015 target of reducing the child mortality rates will be achieved by Ghana. Ghana's maternal mortality still is high despite several efforts by government and development partners to achieving the MDG 5 targets, in fact many women still die every year by complications in hospital and this is the Goal that Ghana has done the worst in out of all of them. Goal 6 has been reduced and the different diseases that have been killing people in Ghana are now being reduced significantly. Ghana’s forests have been disappearing at a disturbing rate which means they have not reached the environmental sustainability goal (Goal 7). Goal 8, not many countries have achieved this goal and Ghana hasn’t either. Ghana hasn’t been giving aid to other countries but has been receiving a lot of aid from other countries. Overall, I think Ghana hasn’t done too well on the MDGs as they have only achieved one and I think Ghana has a lot of improvement to make if they want to reach their goal.
