Volunteers who wish to specialize in the community outreach in Ghana Medicine & Healthcare programs 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 program.
The Public Health project is based in and around the cities centers of Ghana. Volunteers live with a local Ghanaian host family, who will welcome you into their home and
introduce you to the Ghanaian culture.
