    MABIA-Ghana is an indigenous Ghanaian non-profit organization committed to promoting Sexual and Reproductive health and Rights {SRHR) of vulnerable populations particularly women, young girls, and children in the three northern regions.

    MABIA-Ghana is a non-profit organization that was founded in August, 2011 to advocate for sound reproductive health policies for vulnerable populations in Ghana particularly the three northern regions.
    MABIA-Ghana is adopting strategic projects that better meet the sexual and reproductive health and right challenges facing rural communities in northern Ghana. Among the many sexual and reproductive health and rights issues in Ghana are the rights of women and girls to have access to legal and safe abortion services. MABIA-Ghana is fulfilling this need through its project entitled “Increasing Access and Sustaining Quality of Comprehensive Abortion Care in Northern Ghana. In addition, MABIA-Ghana is providing Cervical Screening and Cryotherapy services to women and young girls.

    a) The Board of Directors that plays a strategic oversight role; approves policies and budgets, deliberates on issues of strategic importance, and holds management accountable for agreed decisions.
    b) The Secretariat that is headed by the Executive Director charged with the delivery of day to day activities including staff supervision.
    c) Expert Advisors who provide specialist and expert advice.
