In Ghana infrastructure is not as advances as in Western countries especially in rural areas and a lot of people are in need of medical assistance. International volunteering organisations and local NGO's are working in Ghana to help communities and people affected by poverty. If you apply to volunteer in Ghana you will need to pay an application fee, this will cover your accommodation, transport, meals and also a donation to projects to keep them running throughout the year.

As a medical volunteer you will play a key role in working alongside local staff like doctors and nurses in hospitals, clinics and community outreach programs. These are really rewarding and sometimes challenging positions where you will work hard during the week for the benefit of local people. There are no specific program or application requirements apart from needing to be aged 18 and you will not need to be a full time medical professional to apply. If you are seeking a hands on placement in a skilled area you might need provide medical certifications and experience. There are also general positions available when you can generally help out.

The volunteering role you will play might depend on your skills and previous knowledge / experience, you could be helping doctors and nurses or working with patients in a wide range of areas like tests, counseling, maternal / mental health and medical operations and surgery. This is an opportunity not to be missed if you are looking to help people or gain hands on medical work experience in a developing country. This program attracts a lot of interest and participants from people studying medicine, recent graduates and people generally just looking to travel abroad and make a difference.

Volunteers must be 18 years or older at the beginning of the program. Pre Med, Medical students and Professionals are welcome to join the program.
