The United States government has accused Ghana of failing to do enough to eliminate human trafficking.

The charge is contained in a 2013 trafficking report released by the US State Department.

The report says despite the strides made by Ghana so far in reducing human trafficking, government has failed to take advantage of opportunities to do more.

It says for instance, the government of Ghana has failed to provide any specialized anti-trafficking training to law enforcement officials and did not provide sufficient funding to properly maintain government-operated shelters.

The report signed by US Secretary of State John Kerry noted that the Ghana government rather decreased efforts to protect victims.
