*INCLE: International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement Funds
Ghana is a transit country for South American cocaine en route to Europe. Drug trafficking in West Africa is a threat to regional security, good governance, and public health. The proceeds of the cocaine trafficked through Ghana flow back to and reinforce the financial strength of the same organizations that move cocaine to the United States. The Government of Ghana (GOG) and the U.S. government cooperate on valuable counternarcotics operations.
The U.S. government will continue to partner with governments in the region that are dedicated to addressing the threat of narco-trafficking. The Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) program in Ghana engages law enforcement and justice officials, supporting a comprehensive response to narco-trafficking.
