Healthcare in Delhi's public hospitals is free but understaffed and overcrowded. Slum clinics bring medical care to people in need, where hospitals cannot. Volunteers, though limited in their duties, can assist with routine medical tasks, and experienced professionals can provide hands-on care at clinics. Dental students and dentists can also volunteer, but patient demand varies. Volunteers can guide patients on oral hygiene and suggest other treatments.
In Guatemala, underfunded and understaffed health and dental care systems leave many without access to care. As a dental volunteer, you can make a difference by providing care and hygiene education to disadvantaged communities. Plus, you'll have the opportunity to shadow qualified dentists in a cross-cultural setting! Get hands-on experience scheduling appointments, assisting with teeth cleaning, and educating communities on dental hygiene.
Access to healthcare in rural Ghana is limited, leaving many without essential services like malaria testing and treatment. Healthcare Outreach and Education volunteers can help bridge this gap while educating rural communities on sexual health, hygiene, and nutrition. Join the program to deliver care and receive training in administering malaria tests. Specialty volunteers, like dentists, can tailor outreach to their expertise.
Basic health practices learned at a young age can impact a child's wellbeing for life. Unfortunately, many children in underserved communities lack access to this knowledge. As a Health Education volunteer in Ubud, Bali, you can change this by teaching basic hygiene and health skills to students. Get creative with lesson planning and engage limited-English speakers on topics like oral health, handwashing, cleanliness, and nutrition.
