The practice of gastroenterology is one of the fast growing subspecialties worldwide with advancing technology for diagnostics and therapeutics.
In Ghana gastrointestinal endoscopy started in the late 1970's and was revived by a Japanese initiative called JICA. Through JICA clinicians were sponsored for training in gastrointestinal endoscopy outside Ghana. These gallant clinicians returned to improve endoscopic diagnosis and care for clients with gastrointestinal diseases. These local stalwarts included Prof. E.Q Archampong, Prof. Anthony Foli, Prof. Rudolph Darko, Dr. Kofi Nkrumah, Dr. Wood, Prof. G.W Acheampong and Dr. Mary Afihene have ensured that the practice of gastroenterology continues to thrive in Ghana.
