Health insurance for Ghanaians

Still not all ghanaian people are able to pay the costs for the national health insurance.

If you are registered, you have a lot of benefits without extra charges.


Some of them are:


  • Examination and treatment by doctors
  • Laboratory tests
  • X-ray
  • Ultrasound
  • Several medications for free (see NHIS Medicines list)
  • Surgeries
  • Physiotherapy
  • Admission into hospital
  • Dental treatment
  • Medical examination and treatment prenatal, at birth and following childbirth
  • Emergency service

BOA-Afrika e.V. supports Ghanaian people that are too poor to pay the costs for the national health insurance.

So in case of any sickness Ghanaians can receive medical treatment free of charge to recover quickly and be able to continue earning money to support their families.

50% of fatalities are children

Especially children easily come down with malaria. So they immediately would need medical care. Otherwise they can possibly die.

Every year about 1 million die because of malaria. 90% of them live in Africa. 50% of the fatalities are children.

BOA-Afrika e.V. wants to reduce the death toll of diseases like malaria or tuberculosis. If people can consult a doctor early enough, many fatalities are preventable.
