Bring with you a supply of any medication you usually take, whether prescription or over-the-counter (OTC). Most pharmacies in Ghana are well stocked with basic drugs at reasonable cost but if you want to be sure that you have it, bring it with you. Some OTC medications to consider bringing with you: antihistamines; pain/headache medicine; antifungal (for athlete’s foot); something for vaginal yeast infections (due to the very humid climate during rainy season).
Because of climate and exposure to various diseases, be sure to have a nourishing diet at all times. It may be advisable to take a vitamin supplement. If you need a sugar or salt substitute, bring it.
