BMT Ghana (BMTG) Foundation is a charitable, voluntary, humanitarian, non-profit, non-political, non-partisan and non-governmental organization (NGO), that provides quality and comprehensive services through diagnostic testing, counselling and support, including a cure by Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT) for individuals and families at risk of Sickle Cell Diseases, pediatric cancers and blood disorders.
BMTG Foundation was founded in 2017, and it is the first and only Bone Marrow Transplantation Unit or Center in Ghana for the cure of sickle cell anemia, aplastic anemia, leukemia, pediatric cancers and other blood disorders. Its Research & Education Center and Head Office are all located at Greater Accra Regional Hospital in Ghana.
BMTG Foundation aims at prevention, early diagnosis, treatment and cure of SCDs, as well as of other transplantable disorders such as leukemia and pediatric cancers, reducing the financial burden of sickle cell anemia in underprivileged communities, empowering local professionals, and fostering global advances in biomedical and research sciences. We also seek to improve the health status of patients by enhancing training of a workforce locally to meet Ghana's biomedical, behavioural and clinical research needs.
The organization provides a wide range of services to those individuals and families with either sickle cell traits or variants of the disease, through diagnostic testing, family counselling for parents with infants who tested positive, provision of free medication, provision of free HLA typing, support services, education and screening services, and outreach to the various regions and communities, both for family education and for identification of the incidence of sickle cell diseases, leukemia, pediatric cancers and other blood disorders.
BMTG provides stem cell transplantation and bone marrow transplantation from a compatible donor, at an affordable price compared to the global BMT standards, and with comparative advantage.
Giving every child with SCD, leukemia or cancer the hope for a cure is one of our topmost social responsibilities, since we believe in an excellent health care system for all. We are committed to helping patients lead healthier, normal lives, free from blood transfusions. We value lives and believe all lives matter.
