Public Health Volunteer Projects in Ghana

Public Health in Ghana

Volunteers who wish to specialise in the community outreach aspect of our Ghana Medicine & Healthcare programmes can join a full time Public Health project. Whether you are on a gap year hoping to study medicine at university, a summer placement, or you already have some medical experience, you can make a big difference to local children and adults who would often struggle to access healthcare or afford the treatments without our outreach programme.

The Public Health project is based in and around the city of Kumasi in the centre of Ghana. Volunteers live with a local Ghanaian host family, who will welcome you into their home and introduce you to the Ghanaian culture.

Voluntary Public Health Placements in Ghana

Volunteers work alongside a local healthcare professional who will train you in the various screening and testing procedures where possible. Volunteers are involved in the following types of work:

  • General health testing (e.g. blood sugar levels, body mass index, blood pressure)
  • Eye screening
  • Screening for worms
  • Minor wound and skin treatments
  • Malaria testing and treatment
  • Educational talks on general health issues (e.g. hygiene and first aid)

The public health outreach programme takes place in orphanages, schools, churches, villages and community centres. Volunteers usually work from Monday to Friday and have the weekends free to relax or travel.

This project is available for two weeks if you don't have time to join us for a month or more. This project has been selected by our local colleagues as being suitable for short term volunteering for both the host communities and the volunteer. Although you will gain a valuable cultural insight and work intensely within the local community please be aware that you may not be able to make the same impact as someone volunteering for a longer period.
