Mission 21 is committed to improving health care in Ghana. Ghana is one of the first countries to which the Basel Mission sent missionaries in 1828. The work of the Basel Mission in Ghana gave rise to the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG), today one of the oldest and largest churches in the country.

Mission 21 is still present in Ghana today by supporting projects in the field of health and education. Operationally, these projects are now managed by the organization "Evangelical Mission in Solidarity" (EMS) in Stuttgart. Mission 21 contributes to the financing of the projects.

Health care for the poor

Among other things, PCG runs health centers, basic health services, district hospitals, clinics and nursing schools. Mission 21 supports PCG's work in the area of health.
Although health insurance has been available in Ghana since 2005, not all people in rural regions have access to it by a long shot. In addition, the insurance does not cover the costs of expensive medicines, food and ambulance services. Such costs are covered by the Poor and Sick Fund (PCG). The PCG's health services are represented in eight of Ghana's ten regions.
