11th Annual Project OKURASE Village Health Outreach
Come make a difference in the health of the people in the rural village of Okurase, Ghana West Africa. We welcome medical and non-medical professionals to work side-by-side to provide health care and education directly in the village. We invite all physicians, nurses, dentists, other health care professionals, students and anyone interested in supporting the work. Medical professionals in pharmacy, pediatrics, family medicine, dermatology, gastroenterology, and pulmonology are particularly needed, as the focus areas of this Village Health Outreach (VHO) are the education, prevention, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of common disorders seen in the village including malaria, skin infections, GI and respiratory tract maladies, hypertension, pain management, eye infections, and wound care.
