The Program

From a problem for both countries to a gain for all involved

A shortage of skilled nursing staff is an issue that is just as common in Ghana as it is in Germany.

The solution: knowledge transfer for better training. The purpose of the new Academy at the Medical Centre in Toase is to support the development of medical care in Ghana over the longer term.

It is planned that students will apply to the MHH in Hanover, where they can complete the practical component of their training program.

The Medical Center in Toase

An efficiently run clinic for the people of the Ashanti region

The Frimpong-Boateng Medical Center is an example of how development cooperation can be successful.

Thanks to the commitment and support of many sponsors, the Center has grown steadily to become a stable pillar of local health care since it was opened in 2001.

The hospital is now equipped with more than 120 beds, a laboratory and blood bank, operating theatres, a maternity ward and as many as three intensive care beds. In most sections, the equipment and expertise correspond to European standards.

The Academy

Up to 200 highly trained nurses per year - a quantum leap for care in the country

The school of nursing in Toase will train up to 200 students per year starting from 2022. This is made possible by a new building adjacent to the Frimpong-Boateng Medical Center, which was built using donations totalling $800,000.

This is where students not only acquire their professional skills, but also learn how to fulfil their new role as multipliers. They regularly pass on their knowledge in the surrounding villages by providing education on preventive health and advice on topics such as nutrition, diabetes or malaria.

The curriculum was developed together with the School of Nursing at the MHH in Hanover and also includes German language instruction. This enables the trainees to specialise in a particular field in Hanover after completing their basic training in Ghana. Trainees can apply to do this at the MHH and then continue their practical training.

The Medical Education Program is a success for all

It offers students an international education at the cutting edge of knowledge. The Ashanti region in Ghana benefits from a sustainable upgrade of medical care.
