Volunteer Medical Outreach/Adolescent Sexual and Reproductive Health
Blue-Med Africa medical outreach team is a dynamic team of health care professionals dedicated to providing quality service to children, youth and the entire country.This team is made of medical doctors, registered general nurses, community health nurses, psychiatric nurses, pharmacists, social service workers, ect.

We have found out that, there is a profound lack of sexual health knowledge among the youth in Ghana indicated by the increase in teenage pregnancy and unknown STI/HIV/AIDS status. Blue-Med Africa therefore carries out weekly medical outreach to impoverished communities where youth lack access to healthcare. We organize adolescent sexual and reproductive health education in schools and communities at large. Therefore volunteers are needed to help us in these projects in order to reach more communities.

* Free blood pressure check
* Free blood sugar check
