PHYSIOTHERAPY IN GHANA

Mrs. Price, a British physiotherapist commenced physiotherapy in Ghana in the early 1940s. Physiotherapy started in the nation’s Premier Teaching Hospital (Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital ), in Accra. In the early 1960s, Mrs. Price arranged for one male nurse to be sent to the U.K. for degree training in physiotherapy. After successfully completing the course, he came back and worked in Ghana with Mrs. Price. Government further sponsored other students for degree training in physiotherapy in the U.K. in the late 1960s.

In 1963, Mrs. Price moved to Kumasi to commence a physiotherapy unit at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), another government facility in Ashanti Region of Ghana. Around that time, Ministry of Health gradually and systematically extended physiotherapy to other Regional Hospitals.
