An education official in Ghana who in the past has blamed homosexuality on "single-sex schools" is reportedly claiming that HIV education will limit the number of gay people in the country.
Via the Accra Mail, Pink News writes:
A spokesman for Ghana's Education Ministry has told the Accra Mail he is confident a programme in which teachers warn students of the "adverse consequences" of being gay will make it "a thing of the past".
Paul Krampah, a Public Relations Officer, said his department's HIV/AIDS Secretariat had been training teachers to educate students on the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases.
The Mail says calls had been made to better equip students with knowledge about the health risks involved in a sexually active lifestyle.
