HOW TO Guide

How To with recommended medical providers


RECOMMENDED MEDICAL PROVIDERS


Since accraexpat.com is online (2010), medical information is available to our audience in the HELP section with a selection of hospitals/clinics and recommended doctors from the American and French embassies.

The “How To with health” page of the How To Guide gives useful information about health issues in Ghana.
The “Health Alerts & Advisories” page provides information on successive health problems affecting the country.

In this page, we wish to share recommendations from additional research and expatriates themselves for doctors and other medical providers in Accra, Tema and Kumasi as well any other related useful information.

Your inputs to update and develop this page are highly welcomed and will be published after due dilligence.
Do share your experiences about health in Ghana and do not hesitate to write to editor@accraexpat.com.
Your feedback is also highly appreciated. Please write to feedback@accraexpat.com. Thank you.

Alcoholics Anonymous in Ghana - AA
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self- supporting through our owncontributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety. More information on AA can be found at www.aa.org
Meeting Schedule
Currently, there are two meetings which are attended on a regular weekly basis. Other meetings have been recently reactivated, and we recommend that interested parties contact the number listed to confirm that the meeting is on before traveling.
We recommend that foreign visitors attend the Traditions group meeting on Wednesday mornings (Christ The King Church, at the traffic light opposite Flagstaff House – 7am/8am).
There may be other meetings, in particular Narcotics Anonymous or “12 Step Recovery” meetings; however, this list includes those AA meetings whereby a member has confirmed that it is activity meeting as of the time of this meeting. At present, we are unaware of any active meetings outside of Accra.
