Research Topic: Changing Phase of Indigenous Health Care System in Contemporary Ghana:Implications on Accessibility and Utilization
Overview of research: Indigenous medicine has been acknowledged by major stakeholders as a key health care resource for many in the developing world, including Ghana. Over 60 to 80 percent of people in sub-Saharan Africa are deemed to use this resource in meeting their daily health care needs. Nevertheless, this health care system has undergone tremendous transformations over the last three decades. These transformations include institutionalization of the practice and commercialization of its services. My study seeks to explore how these transformations are impacting access and usage of this vital health care resource in Ghana, as well as, the geographic nature of the transformation.
