The University of Health and Allied Sciences, Ho (UHAS) was established by an Act of Parliament (Act 828 in December, 2011) and envisioned to become a pre-eminent research and practically oriented health educational institution dedicated to community service. The main campus including the central administration is in Ho. A second campus is located in Hohoe.
The University started operations in September, 2012 with 154 students. Students’ population currently stands at 3,752 (3,727 undergraduates and 25 postgraduates) while the staff strength is 611. Staff to student ratio in UHAS is 17:1, which is currently the best among all state universities in Ghana.
We shall realise this vision by taking innovative approaches to research, teaching and engagement with society, informed by a culture of scholarship, academic and service excellence.
UHAS will provide quality education, advance knowledge through scholarship and research that improves health and quality of life.
