The Australian High Commission and the Australian community in Ghana with the assistance of some philanthropists and corporate institutions in Ghana redeveloped the Speech and Language Therapy Centre at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra.

The redeveloped centre now has an observation room, therapy rooms and a library.

The centre specialises in diagnosis and treatment of communication, voice and swallowing disorders related to autism, cleft lip and palate deformities and stammering.

It also caters to patients recovering from stroke and major head and neck cancer surgeries, for which rehabilitation for speech, voice and swallowing will be required.

Australian High Commissioner Andrew Barnes expressed appreciation to everyone who donated to make the project a success.
