The Community Health Workers (CHW) Programme seeks Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and responds to COVID-19. Under the programme, beneficiaries are to be engaged by the Youth Employment Agency to work closely with the Ghana Health Service at the community level.

Successful applicants will be posted strictly to the communities they reside. Applications are free of charge.

  • Ability to use (or learn to use) a smartphone.
  • Only short-listed applicants who successfully complete the CHW training programme will be engaged.

Role of the Community Health Workers

Mode of Application

Interested applicants must apply through www.yea.gov.gh
