    Tema & Takoradi, Ghana



The Port Health Authority under the Ghana Health Service is strengthening the preventive and control measures at Tema and Takoradi ports.

The Port Health Authority is embarking on screening and disinfection of all vessels arriving into the country from the affected countries, especially China.

We entreat all agencies handling vessels within the Tema Port to notify the Port Health office ahead of the arrival of a vessel (at least four clear days) at the port for appropriate health surveillance and monitoring of the vessel and its contents for us to prepare adequately healthwise.
