A Senior Corporate Affairs Officer at the Ghana Tourism Authority, Ms. Judith Kelly said it was essential to acknowledge the intrinsic relationship between health and tourism.

Healthy communities, she said, are better equipped to welcome the host visitors, providing them with enriching experiences while ensuring their safety and comfort.
