Country Ghana
Abstract Objective: Analyze Ghana's public health law comprehensiveness, responsiveness, uniformity and accountability regarding complex modern risks at the intersection of infectious disease, medical AI and vaccine equity.
Method: Doctrinal legal review (CRuPAC) of the 2012 Public Health Act combined with sociolegal analysis of judicial cases, academic literature and comparative governance on emerging technologies.
Results: Gaps exist regarding infectious disease forecasting, transparency duties, decentralized flexibility and technology regulation that constrained pandemic response.
Conclusions: Ghana's outdated health law requires modernization to address twenty-first century convergence of biotechnology, data usage and human rights.
Recommendations: Parliament should amend legislation to embed oversight, participatory mechanisms and binding duties around accountable and rights-respecting development and deployment of AI tools supporting vaccine delivery.
Contributions: Provides novel interdisciplinary framework assessing legal readiness for scientific healthcare priorities.
Significance: Analyzes institutional deficiencies and reform options for life-saving technology integrations.
