Profile of Dr. Kwame Darko

Dr. Kwame Osae DarkoDr. Kwame Osae Darko was in his final year of medical school when he answered The Project’s plea for assistance with the Community Health Education & Outreach Program (CHEOP) in 2006. He was thus a member of the first team of volunteer health professionals invited to give a series of presentations to the congregation of a local church in a busy suburb of Accra. An “Old Boy” of Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School (PRESEC-Legon) (‘O’ Levels ’94; ‘A’ Levels ’96), Dr. Darko earned his medical degree from the University of Ghana Medical School in 2006. He participated in conferences in Holland, Venezuela, Macedonia and Turkey as Ghana’s representative to the International Federation of Medical Students Associations from 2003 to 2005.

His rotations since passing his medical boards have taken him from Korle-Bu, Ghana’s premier teaching hospital, to Kintampo, in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana, to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in the Ashanti Region, where he is currently the Senior House Officer in the Department of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Darko enjoyed the opportunity provided by the recent 2008 African Cup of
Nations to serve as local doctor to the Zambian National Football team. In
his spare time, which is a vanishing luxury during these hectic early years
of his career, he likes to play tennis and just hang out in new places chatting with friends.

He is a co-founder of Outreach, a public health newsletter targetted at medics and all interested in current public health issues.
