The Volunteer Healthcare Corps (VHC) is a distinct but complementary component AIHA's institutional twinning program, targeted to rapidly expand the pool of trained providers, managers, and allied health staff delivering quality HIV/AIDS care to people living with HIV/AIDS. The program is designed to provide an opportunity for skilled professionals from varying fields to serve the cause of global health by volunteering their time.
Volunteers help scale up existing services and jump start new projects through long-term placements at twinning partnership sites and other organizations that receive PEPFAR support. They serve as catalysts for sustainable change as they transfer knowledge and skills through joint operations with local counterparts. Volunteers support the provision of healthcare services, spearhead educational campaigns, and offer mentoring and technical assistance. In doing so, each volunteer makes a meaningful difference in the global fight against AIDS.
