African Jobs by Company

The Ghana-West Africa Program to Combat AIDS and STI (WAPCAS) commenced operations in Ghana in 1996 with support from Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) to implement an STI/HIV intervention program, for Most-At-Risk Populations (MARPS) now Key Populations (KP), in nine West African countries, which included Mali, Niger, Cote D’Ivoire, Guinea, Senegal, Benin, Togo and Burkina Faso. Ghana was the only Anglophone country.

The implementation of this project was made possible through the effective collaboration with the Ghana Health Service. WAPCAS was registered as a local NGO in Ghana after the 10 year CIDA support in 2006. We are legally registered with the Registrar General’s Department and the Department of Social Welfare.

The goal of WAPCAS is to control and reduce new HIV infections among KP as well as the transmission of the infections to the general population through the provision of preventive and curative services using peer-to-peer education to promote the 10 key behaviours which have been accepted in Ghana for KP programming.
