Breast Training in Ghana, June 2023

RAD-AID Ghana began in 2012 under the leadership of Seth Quansah and in close collaboration with Korle Bu Hospital. Mr. Quansah performed a Ghana Radiology Readiness Assessment in Ghana in 2012 and identified digital imaging and workstation development as a key strategic priority in Ghana to complement Ghana’s Ministry of Health implementation of new radiology hardware such as Computed Tomography (CT).

Multiple RAD-AID teams have returned to Ghana at Korle Bu to provide more training and information technology implementation. These teams acted in concert with the WHO Headquarters  in Geneva and in-country WHO teams.
