AIDS

The AIDS epidemic is an international health crisis that is not limited by national borders. The risk to you while you are studying abroad is determined less by geographical location than by individual behavior. It is your responsibility to take appropriate precautions to avoid contracting the disease by avoiding behavior that spread it, such as intravenous drug use and unprotected intercourse. The World Health Organization is informed that in the main centers in Ghana, donated blood is tested for HIV.
