Ghana Targets Health Tourism

Wednesday, 4 November 2009

Ghana is one African country targeting the boom in so-called "health tourism". Holy Trinity Health Spa on the banks of Ghana's River Volta is attracting hundreds of foreign visitors a year, with the offer of cut price treatment administered by doctors mostly trained in Western medical schools. Unlike health tourists in the West, customers here are accessing services often not available in their own countries. The clinic is attracting customers from all over West Africa and beyond.
