HIV Public Health Careership - Ghana
Job Description

Yet almost half of a million people continue to suffer from the disease and the fear and stigmatization of HIV-positive people hinders prevention and treatment programmes.

Communities which will be targeted include commercial sex workers, migrant workers, second hand cloth traders and mining workers as well as out of school youth.
