Mosquito-borne illnesses, such as Malaria, Yellow Fever, and Dengue are a significant problem, and prevention of bites and proper Yellow Fever immunization are important for all areas.

While in Ghana, you should carry and use insect repellents containing either 20 percent DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535; treat clothing and tents with permethrin; and sleep in screened or air-conditioned rooms under insecticide-impregnated mosquito nets.

  • Not equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment.
  • Not staffed with trained paramedics, and often have little or no medical equipment.
  • Injured or seriously ill travelers may prefer to take a taxi or private vehicle to the nearest major hospital rather than wait for an ambulance.

A World Health Organization (WHO) yellow card is required for entry into the country. The Ghana authorities require a Yellow Fever vaccination within the past ten years and that adults have a Polio booster after the original childhood vaccine series.
