Ghana Hopes ‘Incidence Of Homosexuality Will Be A Thing Of The Past’

The Ghana Ministry’s HIV/AIDS Secretariat “has trained teachers to educate students about homosexuality and its ‘adverse consequences’ including HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases,” LGBT Asylum News reports. “We are very optimistic that things will change and the incidence of homosexuality in the country will be a thing of the past,” Education Ministry Public Relations Officer Paul Krampah told the Accra Mail. Earlier this year, Ghana issued a directive allowing police to arrest people suspected to be gay or lesbian and legislators “began discussions last month on strengthening legal sanctions against gay people.”
