Concerns Of The Deaf In National Development

There are many concerns with the deaf community in international
development, among those concerns are the treatment of those who are
deaf, their access to education, employment, and health care. In Ghana
unfortunately, many of the deaf community are not protected, looked down upon, and often
are excluded socially. The Ghana National Association of
the Deaf (GNAD) have raised concerns that they face in their country and are making an effort to change the
general public’s view of the deaf community. The GNAD is pushing for more
legislation to provide common protection for the rights and protection of those with
hearing disabilities in Ghana.
