Are you interested to gain invaluable medical experience while travelling and exploring Ghana? Do you have experience in healthcare and want to use those skills and passion to help those in need? Many citizens in Ghana fail to fight treatable diseases and have lost their lives due to lack of access to proper healthcare. The public hospitals and health centers lack sufficient medical professionals and equipment. Moreover, due to the lack of awareness, diseases such as HIV, malaria, typhoid, dengue and tuberculosis become an epidemic. There is a great need to promote health education in Ghana, especially in poor and rural communities.

Volunteer work will include assisting medical staff and doctors with their tasks, measuring temperature, BP, height and weight of patients, administering immunization, treating minor wounds or injuries, dispensing medications, counseling patients, and helping in health camps among others. You will learn from doctors during major procedures by shadowing them. By joining this program, you will support the healthcare system of Ghana as well as gain a practical experience with medical work which will be helpful for your medical career. You will also provide much need relief to the local medical staffs while making a positive impact in the health of many suffering people and providing them with necessary treatment. Your efforts towards increasing health awareness will benefit the local community and help prevent various common diseases in Ghana.

2-Week Medical Programme in Ghana
It was a great experience for me in Ghana. Franklin and his family were very friendly and made me feel very comfortable. The nurses went out of their way to make sure that I had a fruitful learning experience about Ghana Healthcare system: * case study of malaria, typhoid, * using sphygmomanometer, * learning how to measure maturity of fetus stomach, * learning presentation of the fetus located the head, gender, cardiac activity, * using the programme to find gestational age from diameter of the head and femur length, etc. Furthermore, it was my unforgettable experience in Ghana with rich culture and cuisine. Thanks to Global Crossroad and their staffs for making my stay in Ghana very pleasant. I would highly recommend volunteering with Global Crossroad.
