Ghana has experienced rapid economic growth over the past decades resulting into a substantial progress in reducing income poverty. The Ghana Living Standards Survey 6 (GLSS 5 & 6) indicates that Ghana has been able to reduce the people living below the poverty line from 51.87% in 1991 to 24.6% in 2012. Within the same period, the extremely poor population was also reduced from 36.5% to 8.4%.

In order to sustain and deepen this progress, the Government of Ghana (GoG) has established the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MoGCSP) to harmonize and co-ordinate all social intervention programs in the country.

To ensure that social protection benefits get to the people who really need them, the Government of Ghana through Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection (MoGCSP) has established the Ghana National Household Registry (GNHR) with the mandate to establish a single national household register from which all social protection programs in in Ghana will select their beneficiaries.

The registry was launched in Accra by the Vice President of Ghana, His Excellency Paa Kwesi Amisah-Arthur in October 2015.
