STROKE COMMUNITY RE-INTEGRATION PROGRAM (SCRIP)

IN GHANA

Stroke is the leading cause of death and adult disability. According to the Stroke Support Network of Ghana, more than 600,000 people are living with stroke in the country.

The aim of our Stroke Community Re-Integration Program is to provide occupational and physical therapy services at the doorsteps and within the communities of stroke survivors throughout Ghana.  Through our pilot collaboration with the Stroke Support Network of Ghana, Ministry of Health and Noncommunicable Disease Alliance we were able to organize a pop-up rehab clinic for stroke survivors in Eastern Ghana.  Read more about our project here.

GoTHERAPY & THE SHAI OSUDOKU DISTRICT

HISTORY

In March 2020, GoTHERAPY and the Shai Osudoku District opened the FIRST community occupational therapy center in Ghana to serve adults living with chronic health conditions and children with disabilities. 

In October 2019, GoTHERAPY collaborated with the Shai Osudoku Community Therapy Unit, a division of the Shai Osudoku District to host the second annual Stroke Community Re-Integration Program. To meet the growing needs of stroke survivors, GoTHERAPY and the Shai Osudoku District, under the leadership of Rev. Ebenzer Asiamah, collaborated to fully renovate an old pharmacy warehouse and transformed it into the Shai Osudoku Community Occupational Therapy Center in Dodowa, Ghana.
