Volunteers provide moral support and reduce anxiety for patients and/or residents in communities where many people still view doctor’s visits as a last resort. Our healthcare placements offer an exceptional learning opportunity, in addition to a gratifying volunteer experience. You will work with the Ministry Of Health and the Ghana Aids Commission to teach awareness and prevention of HIV/AIDS to local communities, villages and in schools.
For those who aspire to a career in health-related fields, these placements offer an international learning ground where you can not only view healthcare in practice, but healthcare as practiced by professionals in a different country. For anyone interested in social services, observing the administration of health services in other parts of the world is invaluable.
It is also possible to work with HIV/AIDS patients at Hospitals where there is an outpatient scheme and it is possible to travel to the remote villages with some of the doctors in order to visit patients.Many of the suffers live in the rural areas without frequent access to medical care, whilst others cannot afford the medication they need. The greatest weapon we have to combat the spread of the virus is education. It is therefore important to teach people to understand the disease and how they can best protect themselves from infection.
PCN continuously provides volunteers for support and offers the opportunity for valuable cultural exchange at the same time. Whether assisting with the daily workload of local health professionals, being a supporter of people with HIV/AIDS who have been shunned by their community, or providing basic sex education and disease prevention to community youth, you can make a difference.
