Ghana

ISO Code: 
GHA 

"In Ghana, the proportion of undernourished people has decreased from 34 percent to five percent in the last 20 years. Yet, signs of alimentary security and nutrition are mixed, because while per capita caloric intake is strong, protein per capita could be increased. Other issues also need attention: Ghanaians’ life expectancy remains quite low at 57, and child mortality has decreased steadily over the last ten years but must continue to lower from its current number of 69 per 1000 live births. Almost one-third of Ghana’s Gross Domestic Product depends – and more than half the population subsists – on agriculture."
