Ghana committed to the tenets of the MDGs in September 2001 and mainstreamed them into the respective national development policy frameworks to ensure full implementation of the eight goals. Progress towards the attainment of the MDGs has been reported on annually since 2002 in Annual Progress Reports on the implementation of national development policy frameworks. Special MDG reports have also been prepared biennially to examine trends and to assess the supporting environment and resources needed to attain the goals.
The 2015 Ghana MDGs Report assesses Ghana's progress as of 2014. Out of the 21 targets and 60 official indicators adopted globally for monitoring the MDGs, Ghana has, however, adopted a more nationally relevant set of 17 targets and 36 indicators.
