IOM IN YOUR COUNTRY

Overview

Present in Ghana for over 25 Years

IOM has been active in Ghana since 1987 and has contributed to the Government of Ghana’s efforts to manage migration effectively through a wide variety of projects and programmes. The organization’s main office is in Accra with sub-offices located in Accra, Brong Ahafo Region – Nkoranza, and Northern Region – Tamale. IOM activities are implemented in all 10 Regions of Ghana.

IOM Accra started its programmes by supporting the institutional capacity-building needs within the country through Phase Two of the Return of Qualified African Nationals (RQAN II) programme (1988-92). This programme facilitated the return of highly qualified African nationals including Ghanaians residing in the diaspora to contribute to the socio-economic development of Ghana by returning home to take up key positions in priority sectors including health, education, economics, finance, public service, and political administration.
