The Embassy monitors the social-health and humanitarian situation and the policy pursued by the Ghanaian government as far as health (health monitoring) is concerned.
In the event of an emergency or a health crisis (Cholera, Ebola, Meningitis), the Embassy participates in international coordination and tries to meet the needs expressed by the Ghanaian authorities.
France is the second donor country to the Global Fund against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund). Ghana received more than $800 million since the inception of the Fund in 2002. As such the Embassy participates in the Country Coordinating Mechanism, and in the monitoring of the implementation of the institution’s funding.

The embassy also contributes to the implementation of the French initiative called "5%", which is to fund research projects or training based on French expertise. In Ghana, a project on the treatment and prevention of malaria in pregnant women is underway, through collaboration between Noguchi laboratory of the University of Accra and the Institut de Recherche et Développement français (French Institute for Research and Development) (IRD).
