VACCINATION & HEALTH: Participants are advised to obtain supplementary medical/travel insurance. However, good public and private medical facilities in Ghana provide for essential medical needs. First-aid services will be available at the conference venue.
For information about vaccination requirements and health information for travellers please consult the World Health Organization’s (WHO) website at http://www.who.int/ith/countries/gha/en/.
Health insurance is vital and must cover for accidents and emergency evacuations. Medical facilities are available in all regional capitals and certain towns and villages.
Cholera: WHO guidelines state that a cholera vaccination certificate is no longer a condition for entry to Ghana. However, precautions are seasonal outbreaks during rainy seasons ( May to July and September to October). Visitors must seek up-to date advice. Typhoid: Typhoid immunization is advised. Malaria: Malaria risk is predominantly in the malignant (P. falciparum) form and exists throughout the year in the whole country.
