Ghana Journalists Association (GJA)

The Ghana Journalists Association, founded in August 1949, has grown over the years to become the umbrella organisation representing Ghanaian journalists. It currently has membership of over a thousand (1,000), comprising practicing journalists and those in journalism-related fields. These include press officers and public relation officers who are classified as affiliate members.


The GJA is registered as a professional association recognised by Ghana’s constitution which lists it as one of the several bodies that make up the National Media Commission (NMC). The Commission was created to insulate the state-owned media from governmental control and promote press freedom and maintain high journalistic standards. The GJA seeks to influence positively the growth of the media by expanding the frontiers of press freedom and enhancing the integrity of professional journalism in Ghana.


As a member of the coalition, the GJA is able to take the advantage of the platform that is provided it as a professional body to carry out a planned and sustained fight against corruption jointly with other groups in society. The association has committed itself to impressing on their members to publicise the activities of GACC.
