A west African country, bordered by the Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso and Togo, Ghana was the first sub-Saharan territory to achieve independence from British rule. After a series of coups and a period of one party rule, Ghana has now completed two successive democratic transfers of power - though the most recently elected head of state died unexpectedly and the post is currently held by his former vice-President. While Ghana scores highly for press freedom and has seen significant advances in political liberties, there are still concerns about police brutality, treatment of LGBT people and violence against women and girls.
