Health Care Volunteering in Ghana
Ghana like many developing countries lacks adequate health care services especially for children and the poor. International Volunteer Travel partners with Non-governmental Organizations (NGOs) and public facilities that provide health care for children and mature people.
The objective of this health care project is to raise the standard and quality of life of the community and provide efficient and quality services to people who are most vulnerable, especially women and children.
International volunteers will work with local health centers and assist with routine medical work like taking vital signs, dressing wounds, taking patients history and keeping medical records, counselling patients, providing assurance and moral support to patients family, medical laboratory work; medical and dental public health campaigns, etc.Professional Requirements: All health care volunteers (doctors, nurses, dentists, senior students, etc) need proof of training such as practicing license, student ID, etc.
Combination of Programs
In addition to Volunteer placement in Ghana, the International Volunteer Travel also offers opportunities for Internships Abroad in Ghana, a Language and Cultural Experience, and Ghana Adventure Tours and Holidays. We have placement for individuals, Gap year students and discounted offers for groups of volunteers wanting to be placed together in our Ghana projects.
