P.Y.V.O provides the avenue for interested health professionals all over the world to exhibit their skill to help solve the issues related to health degradation in Ghana. P.Y.V.O provides placements for interested participants, especially in the rural areas where health conditions are very poor. On the other hand, P.Y.V.O organizes placements for interested health practitioners to work in childcare and maternity hospitals in Ghana. Interested participants will work in collaboration with other professional local Doctors and Nurses. This projects demands volunteer's level of knowledge, experience, and skill. Participating in this project will help the volunteer to understand the health problems facing Ghana and Africa as whole. Therefore, there are countless possibilities to impact lives; such as our work in local orphanages, schools, and hospitals. Ghana's health care and provision suffers as much as any other public service sector in the country. While structures are in place for an effective heath service, there is an enormous deficit in terms of staff and resources. This is why the volunteers' help is very much appreciated by the nurses and doctors we do volunteer work with.
