Tele-health in Ghana West Africa–Article for American Academy of Audiology

Audiology is in its infancy in Ghana, West Africa. There is much progress that has been made by the first audiology graduates in Ghana. To my knowledge, all the graduates have audiology-related jobs throughout Ghana. Two of our former students are now pursuing PhDs at universities in Canada. Another audiologist, working at a teaching hospital in northern Ghana has just submitted a manuscript to the American Academy of Audiology (peer-reviewed journal) that was accepted for publication just this week. The title is “Inter-regional newborn hearing screening via tele-health in Ghana.” Graham Amponsah Ameyaw is first author. This is pioneering work that has been ongoing in Ghana since 2014. I could not be more pleased with these young audiologists as they forge new paths to providing hearing healthcare to their fellow Ghanaians.
