While in Ghana, individuals with disabilities may find accessibility and accommodation very different from what you find in the United States. Ghana's Persons with Disabilities Act (2006) explicitly prohibits discrimination against persons with physical, sensory, intellectual, and mental disabilities in employment, health care, air travel and other transportation, and other domains. The government does not systematically or overtly discriminate against persons with disabilities, but such persons may experience societal discrimination. The law provides persons with disabilities access to public buildings "as far as is practical." However, most buildings, transportation, and educational facilities do not provide for people with special needs. Because many streets are not well maintained or unpaved, and sidewalks are not prevalent, individuals in wheelchairs or who have difficulty walking face challenges.
