Clinical Engineering Project
Addressing gaps in clinical engineering capacity is a cost-effective solution to sustainably improve the capacity of healthcare professionals to provide the life-saving care that all people deserve access to.
GHANA MEDICAL HELP is an international charitable organization working to transform health services and sustainably improve health outcomes for under-served, impoverished communities in Ghana and around the world.
The Ghana Medical Help team is a group of dedicated professionals from diverse backgrounds with a common goal of seeing access to health care become a human right.
The GMH approach involves sustainable, research-based, customized interventions.
By collaborating with the local health care providers and community leaders on program development and operation, GMH has created a system that allows for ongoing monitoring, evaluation and adaptation of its programs. This method generates successful interventions that emphasize local ownership and are specifically tailored to the local environment, ultimately transitioning to self-sufficiency and effectively eliminating the traditional challenges faced by many international aid initiatives.
"We are so grateful for [everything] GMH has done for us, but we are like Oliver Twist - we need more!"
