Although the Domestic Violence Act does not explicitly mention marital rape, the act is linked to the Criminal Offences Act (revised in 2007) under which marital rape is an offence in Ghana, Nana Oye Lithur, Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection has said.
“Marital rape is criminalised in pursuant to repeal of section 42(g) by the Statute Revisions Act. Under section 32 of the Domestic Violence Act, where an act committed within the domestic setting is an offence, which attracts a sentence of more than three years imprisonment under the Criminal Offences Act, the police is expected to bring the action under the latter Act and not the Domestic Violence Act.
“Offences which attract sentences of more than three years imprisonment include rape, defilement, incest, serious bodily harm, causing harm with a weapon, manslaughter and murder,” Nana Oye Lithur stated on Friday as Ghana addresses the 59th session of the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW).

Dr Steve Manteaw, Campaign Coordinator, Integrated Social Development Centre has suggested that oil and gas companies operating in the country should be engaged and made to contribute to the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

He said besides, they attract social vices such as prostitution, with its attendant spread of sexually transmitted diseases which might become a burden on the health system.
“A share of the Annual Budget Funding Amount is a way to ensure that majority of the Ghanaian poor also benefit from the country’s oil find,” Dr Manteaw stated at the 2014 Civil Society Policy Forum of the Universal Access to Healthcare Campaign in Accra. Read more...

Mr. James Ware, Upper East Regional Director of Forestry Commission, has decried the alarming rate of deforestation in the Region and called on communities close to forest reserves not to misuse the vegetative cover as that would adversely affect the environment.
Mr Ware said trees were for life and therefore continuous felling of them resulted in food insecurity, environmental degradation and facilitated climate change.
He noted the efforts most environmental and civil society organisations put into growing trees, and said some of the planted trees ended up poorly because of acts such as burning, poor rain fall and destruction by animals.
