Health Needs Assessment for Kumasi, Ghana

Pehr, Jennifer L.; Akuamoa-Boateng, Abenaa

In early 2006 Professor Jeffrey Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute (EI) at Columbia University, launched Kumasi as a Millennium City. Since then, the EI’s Millennium Cities Initiative (MCI) has conducted research aimed at identifying the services, resources and infrastructure needed for the people of Kumasi to attain the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of universally endorsed, quantifiable targets established by the United Nations to
point the way out of extreme poverty for the planet’s poorest billion.
