How are healthcare services in Accra?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads about the quality of medical care in Accra, they replied...

"Healthcare services in Accra, consist of a mix of public and private facilities, including hospitals, clinics, and pharmacies. The public healthcare system is managed by the Ghana Health Service, which operates several hospitals and clinics throughout the city. These facilities offer a range of services, including primary care, emergency care, maternity care, and specialized treatments for various medical conditions. In addition to public facilities, there are numerous private hospitals and clinics in Accra that cater to both local residents and expatriates. These private facilities often provide a higher standard of care and more advanced medical equipment than public hospitals, but they also tend to be more expensive. Pharmacies are widely available throughout Accra, with both public and private options. They offer a range of medications, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs, as well as basic medical supplies. Despite the availability of healthcare services in Accra, the city faces several challenges in providing adequate care to its residents. These challenges include a shortage of healthcare professionals, limited resources and funding, and a high burden of communicable and non-communicable diseases. As a result, many residents may experience long wait times, limited access to specialized care, and a lack of essential medications and supplies. To address these challenges, the government of Ghana has been working to improve healthcare infrastructure, increase funding for healthcare services, and train more healthcare professionals. Additionally, international organizations and non-governmental organizations are also working to support healthcare initiatives in Accra and throughout Ghana," commented one expat who made the move to Accra, Ghana.
