Stick to drinking bottled water in Ghana and try to avoid the sachets of water sold on the street – these are often contaminated.

The most reliable and modern medical treatment is in Accra. Lister Hospital is a good choice. In Kumasi try County Hospital. A short consultation with a private doctor should cost around US$25.
