Health projects in Ghana

Einsatzort: Ghana, Afrika
Aktions-Bereich: Gesundheit & Pflege
Urban healthcare system in Ghana faces multiples challenges. The HIV/AIDS epidemic remains a serious problem, and multiple organizations are supporting education. The projects in Accra focus on both medical treatment and public health education. They empower volunteers to contribute to stopping the spread of HIV/AIDS and other preventable diseases, and to provide quality healthcare.



Projekt und Rolle der Freiwilligen

Choose between medical assistance or public health education.

Medical assistance:
Volunteers work at a hospital for five to seven hours a day. They volunteer under the direction of local doctors and nurses. Depending on their qualifications, volunteers can contribute to a variety of medical areas with the local staff, including the treatment of tropical infectious diseases such as malaria and typhoid; emergency medicine; maternity; and primary care.

The local doctors and nurses determine the level of responsibility delegated to volunteers, but activities may include assisting in the emergency room, maintaining medical records and suturing wounds. Additionally, depending on the local need, volunteers work with patients to educate them on topics like nutrition, personal hygiene, reproductive health and their own treatment and medication in the hospital. Some days are busier with patients than others, and, as for all UBELONG Volunteers, we expect volunteers to be flexible and help wherever there is need.

Public health education:
Volunteers divide their time between administrative and basic support at a hospital, and the preparation of health education workshops at local schools. Some days of the week, under the guidance of nurses, volunteers assist in basic tasks at a hospital. Activities may include weighting children, updating vaccine records, etc. Volunteers also devote some days of the week to the design and delivery of health education workshops at local schools and community centers on common diseases such as malaria, cholera, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and typhoid. In this capacity, volunteers deliver talks and assist with the logistics and scheduling of workshops.

Please note:

1. On this project volunteers pay an additional US$200 as a donation to the medical facility.

2. For the medical assistance project, volunteers must bring their own basic medical equipment, including doctor coats, eye protection, stethoscopes and rubber gloves.

3. Volunteers must bring to Accra an official transcript from their university showing their coursework and/or a certificate proving they are a medical professional.
