Public Health Educational Strategies for Alternative Medicine Use in Ghana

Ayittey Godwin


Although, Ghanaians’ markets were choked with varieties of alternative medicines, only a small portion of the population depended on the use of alternative remedies. Research indicated that many people were not aware of the potency and the existing of the indigenous medicines. The writer’s focal motive for this paper was to look at the criteria for public health education. Interestingly, criteria for public health education were analytically examined. It came to bear that information giving out was crucial in awareness creation, changing of attitude, belief and behavior. However, channels or methods of public health education were also examined. The importance of public health education in alternative medicines was also censoriously researched. Additionally, application of alternative medicine in Ghana for holistic health was exclusively written.  The information gathered for this academic work was through primary and secondary ways and means. The main primary gathering tools for this work were discussion or interview, opinion poll or questionnaire and field observation.  Books, internet, journals, newspapers, periodicals and yearly reports from civil services, governments and institutions were the central tools for secondary data gathering. The calculable or quantitative and qualitative methods were employed for the analyses of the research aftermath.   The result or the product of the study was deliberated and deductions were worn-down.
