RIPPLE Africa is looking for volunteer nurses and doctors to experience medicine in a rural community setting in Malawi. Healthcare in Malawi is extremely under resourced, and in our district there is just 1 doctor to every 100,000 people, and 1 nurse to every 18,000.
RIPPLE Africa volunteer nurses and doctors significantly increase the resources of local healthcare in the area, and split their time volunteering between two local community clinics, and the Chintheche Rural Hospital. Volunteers can also become involved in our public health projects, including assisting in Under 5 community clinics, and our Mal-nourished Children’s Project. Volunteers assist trained Malawian healthcare workers, and are given an induction on arrival after which they can choose the clinic they wish to help.
