Health and Life Sciences Ghana

The health sector in Ghana is in transition from a mainly government managed public sector to greater diversity of health services providers. The public sector faces many challenges in terms of financing and the resulting diminishing quality of basic services. The National Health Insurance (NHIS) is a national service that finances the sector but while effective it faces serious challenges for financial sustainability and efficiency.

In response to the continuing demand and willingness from the middle class and elite to pay competitive fees for quality health services, the opportunities for international investors in the health sector will continue to emerge.
