With offices in Accra and Tamale, the UNICEF team seeks to achieve results in strategic programme areas. The overall goal is for every child to survive and thrive, to live in a safe and clean environment, to learn, to be protected from violence and exploitation, and to have an equitable chance in life. The current Country Programme of cooperation is aligned with the Government priorities, the UN Sustainable Development Partnership (UNSDP) and Key Results for Children (KRCs) in the West and Central African Region (immunization, nutrition, learning outcomes, ending child marriage and ending open defecation). UNICEF main strategies include evidence-based advocacy, system strengthening, integrated programming across sectors, emergency preparedness and response, and innovation.

Digital Communication forms a substantive part of the strategic output of the Communication and Advocacy Section. It is also an essential component to the overarching goals contained in the UNICEF Communication and Advocacy Strategy as UNICEF seeks to a) nearly double its supporter bases to engage 100 million individuals to volunteer, advocate and engage and b) create platforms and opportunities for children and young people to drive progress and demand accountability. Digital platforms are frequently used by influential and/or youth audiences in Ghana. More than 50 percent of the population of Ghana use the internet and 26.1 percent of the population are active social media users.
