Infrastructure and Resources

All regional capitals and most districts have hospitals, polyclinics, clinics and health care centers. Three teaching hospitals in Accra, Kumasi and Tamale have facilities for treating special cases. Additionally, a number of religious organisations and private medical practitioners operate hospitals and clinics all over the country. Herbal medicine and psychic healing are also generally practiced, while a special government Herbal Medicine Hospital and Research Centre exists at Akwapim-Mampong.
