Through partnering with a range of local hospitals and clinics in the region, we ensure you have an authentic experience of Ghanaian healthcare. While on the wards, you can expect to see unfamiliar ailments like typhoid psychosis, malaria, and TB, all under the supervision of local professionals.  Ghana is also incredibly beautiful, with wild game parks, sandy white coastlines, and incredible waterfalls to explore in your time off the wards.
