TOPIC Child poverty and disparities

A study that attempts to address the poverty situation of children in Ghana is of relevance in many respects. So far, all attempts to examine poverty in the country have targeted the general population without specifically looking at what happens to children. The current study undertook further analysis of the Demographic and Health Survey (DHS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS), and Ghana Living Standards Survey (GLSS) datasets to critically explicate child poverty in Ghana. It further examined policies and laws that have been adopted to promote child wellbeing in the country.
