    Abstract:
    Traditional therapy was dominant in Ghana. However, by the 19th to 20th centuries, scientific medicine had been fully introduced to the people of Ghana. There is a growing tendency in the research of medicine in Ghana. Some scholarly works had been published on Western medicine; however, all these works had not been brought together in analyzing the history of scientific medicine in Ghana. This work conducts an opportunistic historical overview of Western medicine and health in Ghana through the twentieth century. This is to bring to light some scholarly literature on Western medicine in Ghana, of which further research could be conducted. Some selected works that were relevant in the study of the history of western medical practices and health issues in Ghana were looked at.
