National AIDS Control Programme

In 1985, the Government of Ghana established the National Technical Committee on AIDS. Following the confirmation of the first two cases of AIDS in 1986, and recognising the potential impact that HIV/AIDS could have on the socio-economic development of the country, Government established the National AIDS Control Programme (NACP) in 1987. NACP has since then been the technical lead agency in the health sector's response to HIV and AIDS in Ghana. It is a Programme under the Disease Control and Prevention Department of the Public Health Division of the Ghana Health Service (GHS).
