IVUmed has had a presence in Ghana for over ten years. Our work on lymphatic filariasis (LF) began in Ghana in 2002. Our LF work extends throughout West Africa, led by Dr. Sunny Mante in Accra, Ghana. IVUmed’s pediatric urology training in Ghana is based in Kumasi at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. Ghana is also a key site in IVUmed’s Traveling Resident Scholar Program.
