Our Program Activities

Equipping Health Workers for Servant Leadership and Strengthening Local Initiatives

Greenlight:Medical

Greenlight:Medical is a collaborative program between Crosspoint Global Health, Methodist Church Ghana and TMS Global for medical and undergraduate students interested in global health, spiritual formation and inter-cultural mission. Dr. Cameron Gongwer co-leads a group of students for a 5 week mission immersion experience in Ghana, Africa.
Beginning in early June the team participates in mission preparatory training at TMS Global headquarters outside Atlanta, Georgia. This training includes introductions to spiritual disciplines, worldview, culture shock, and team building. In Ghana, the team is based in Ankaase at the Methodist Faith Healing Hospital. Outreach to other health facilities in different areas widens the experience. Working with Ghanaian Christians, students serve and learn about healthcare mission. They experience community life and culture in an African context, and deepen their relationship with God. This journey offers an opportunity for discerning a call to mission in the sphere of healthcare.

Training Programs

Crosspoint Global Health (CGH) trains health workers to be servant leaders through healthcare mission seminars, skill improvement workshops, and service learning programs. In 2014 our health worker pilot training project in Ankaase began at the Methodist Reading Town Library with 65 participants representing most departments from the Ankaase Hospital.
Topics focused on concerns with food security and malnutrition, and gastrointestinal bleeding, plus skill development with injection technique, and surgery.  This program was highly successful as evaluated by participants.  The next year 100 health workers from Ankaase Hospital and other sister clinics in the region joined for a 2 day program at the Reading Town Library.  Department leaders from the hospital joined the Crosspoint Global Health team in presenting clinical reviews in medical, nursing and chaplaincy care. The training expanded again in 2016 to target representatives from all Methodist Health Service personnel in Ghana.  Fifty five health workers received certificates for the program on chronic disease management that was presented by Crosspoint Global Health and Methodist Health Service leaders in Kumasi, Ghana.  In 2017, the theme was child health and survival for our collaborative training program again at the Freeman Centre in Kumasi, Ghana. Over 70 mid-level providers, like physician assistants, nurses, midwives and pharmacy technicians from Methodist Health facilities around Ghana, received certificates for this 3 day training. Crosspoint Global Health also collaborates with the Methodist Church Ghana and TMS Global to provide healthcare mission training for interested medical and university students on the field in Ghana.  Our pilot program is in 2017.  CGH needs support for leadership travel and training expenses.

Community health assessments

CGH works with local partners and coordinates health assessments for communities.

CGH is committed to promoting medical education in resource poor settings. Practicing medicine is difficult enough in the developed world where information and consultants are just a mouse-click or phone call away. It is even more so in areas without the underlying technical infrastructure. Therefore, a goal of CGH is to provide medical education through lectures and seminars with hands on training to build upon the skills of those health care professionals working in lower resource settings.

Mobile medical clinics

Working with local and international partners, Crosspoint Global Health coordinates mobile medical clinics to support church health outreaches. Crosspoint Global Health (CGH) helps organize and operate mobile medical clinics in underserved areas.
We collaborate with existing regional health services as well as local and national church organizations to provide general medical care to villages that lack reasonable access to primary medical care.  We utilize both nationals and expatriates to staff our clinics which helps enhance our spirit of unity.  In addition to general medicine, we provide health screenings to primary schools, and are developing specialty clinics where needed to enhance the level of care provided locally. Our clinics make use of appropriate rapid diagnostic testing and are developing a health informatics system to improve the care we provide.  Much of our recent work has been done throughout Ghana, West Africa, but we are working with others across the globe exploring areas where we might be of service.

School health screenings

Crosspoint Global Health works with local partners and coordinates health screening for schools. Education and health are universal values.  Education is a part of healthy living, and without good health, learning is compromised.  That’s why we support schools in developing countries that seek to provide a good education AND good health for their students.
Crosspoint Global Health (CGH) collaborates with rural schools like the Royal Christian Academy in Ghana to enhance education through health screening.  Whether by evaluating student growth parameters, development milestones, immunization status, vision, or hearing, CGH works with teachers and parents to identify opportunities to improve child health and education.
