To get things up and running, we need a stable foundation
We will take care of this foundation because development in Ghana is a matter that is dear to our hearts.
Our work thrives on continuity and reliability both in terms of financing and personnel. From fundraising to negotiations, from medical expertise to unbureaucratic help - we can make it happen.

Nursing plays a key role in healthcare systems all over the world. The latest developments in medicine and technology and increasing needs are changing the demands placed on health care, and therefore also on the role of nursing. Investing in nursing means ensuring that training is provided at a high level of expertise and professionalism. As a medical school, this is what we do every day - and it is what we know how to well. MHH is using its expertise to support this exchange programme to build a school of nursing in Toase, Ghana.
Director of Nursing and Head of Nursing Management at MHH
As President of MHH, I warmly welcome the association's activities. MHH looks forward to welcoming nursing school graduates from Ghana if they wish to continue their training with us so as to attain further specialisation.
