Visitors:
Bomkpa is one of the most isolated villages in Northern Ghana. You can hardly find it on the map. The village is also unique because the people have never seen a doctor, a professional midwife or even a health assistant. The nearest hospital is at Salaga, several hours by motorbike. That is if you can cross the river. The bridge is broken. The MHC Roving Film Crew made a memorable trip to Bomkpa to the file one of the most fascinating reports of the series.

"The Lights Have Gone Out Again" is a moving investigation into the high incidence of maternal deaths in Ghana. Filmed in diverse locations across Ghana, it tells powerful stories about the challenges that women confront as they seek care from the health services. It features key advocates, policy makers and leading health practitioners and highlights issues that hitherto had not featured highly in the national health debate.
