Medical care in developing countries is often desperately limited due to problems of limited knowledge, under funding, and oversubscription. Hospitals and clinics throughout these countries can be severely under resourced and are continually open to extra support. This story is true of Ghana, and we have developed a close relationship with a number of hospitals and clinics in the Ghanaian capital, Accra, to provide opportunities for improvements to the quality and delivery of local healthcare services. We welcome you, with or without previous medical experience, since you will not be asked to undertake any work that requires formal medical training. Much of your role will be in a support capacity, working alongside professional medical staff in Ghana. You are likely to spend much of your time shadowing the local staff in their day-to-day work, learning how they manage and interact with patients. At other times you will be invited to offer a more hands-on role to the medical care being delivered, provided you are capable in that role.. Aims &Objectives : Create cultural exchange opportunities through our efforts with the locals, Assist the local clinics and hospitals with extra hands, to support medical service delivery, Develop your teamwork, knowledge and skills through hands on activity.
About the Accommodation : During your stay here in Ghana you will be accommodated at our center here in Accra. The accommodation is not far away from the beach, it’s just a 10 minutes drive to get there. It’s also centrally located to the most of our programs. Food Arrangements : Typical Ghanaian dishes mixed with western food will be served at the accommodation. Typical ghanaian food includes rice dishes, beans, fruits, vegetables, chicken, beef and fish.
Accra is the capital and largest city in Ghana, with a population of over two million. Accra stretches along the Ghanaian Atlantic coast and extends north. Our accommodation is located in Teshie, a coastal suburban town on the east side of Accra. It is a quickly growing suburb that’s getting bigger and bigger every day. Teshie is rich in it’s diversity and has it’s own train station for easy transport.
It is a requirement that you MUST have a yellow fever vaccination and must obtain a certificate as proof. You may be asked to produce this certificate at the point of entry into Ghana and can be refused entry if you don’t have one. There may be other vaccine recommendations listed that you may want/need to get before starting.
