    Yes. It is quite clear that privatisation of such services means that many poor people are excluded from what should be universal services in Ghana and everywhere else. They are vital to health and well-being and I find it shocking that financial aid from the World bank and others often carries provisos about freeing up such services to competition from big multi-national companies. The Green Party is committed to increasing the aid budget to 1% of GDP, but we would like to ensure that it is channelled to the poorest by providing basic services that are free or heavily subsidised.
