Enhancing the
health and wellness
of west Africa
cocoa colleagues
and their families


 

 


When ADM opened a new cocoa processing plant in Kumasi, Ghana, in October 2009, the company also launched a comprehensive workplace health program for employees, their families, and other members of the cocoa-growing community in partnership with Gesellschaft für Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ), an international sustainable development organization.  The goal is to meaningfully reduce the incidence of HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other infectious diseases, and to increase access to health and social services offered by the country’s National Health Insurance Scheme. Approximately 180 ADM employees and their immediate family members are enrolled in the program.

ADM operates a similar program in Côte d’Ivoire, where, in 2010, more than 280 colleagues received safety, health and environment training, while approximately 480 were given vaccinations to prevent malaria, yellow fever and meningitis.
