  • To provide equitable access to appropriate, timely and high quality primary care
  • To provide timely referral and coordinate multidisciplinary care for the benefit of the patient.

This is a unit under the Family Medicine Department of the Greater Accra Regional Hospital.
It has been in existence for 2 years, providing comprehensive, coordinated, and continuous care to adolescents 13 to 21years seeking primary care.
It is strategically situated to provide multi-disciplinary care for conditions seen uniquely among adolescents.
It is a primary care specifically tailored to adolescents (13 to 21years)
The goal of ACC is to improve the health of adolescents through comprehensive, continuous, coordinated, and preventive care.


Specialists (Palliative Care)- provide Palliative Care to both inpatient and outpatient clients.

The team has so far developed referral forms and guidelines and clerking sheets to be uploaded to Health Pro and is working on a work schedule, Standard Operating Procedures, and protocols for the unit. Due to staff constraints, the Specialist Palliative Care Team will be limited to inpatient consultations, outpatient clinics, and home visits.

Patients requiring admission will be managed jointly with the primary physician and admitted under them until such a time that the unit has its own ward and is fully staffed to provide round-the-clock service.
