About Program

This project involves placements in dispensaries, health centers, and hospitals mostly on rural villages. The volunteers are expected to be qualified and experienced.

For our medical program you will be placed in a medical clinic or a hospital, depending on your previous experience and training. You will usually shadow doctors and other healthcare workers, observing how the healthcare system in Tanzania works and performing basic care for patients under supervision. You will typically work in a support role as directed by a clinic or hospital staff.

As a step contributing to the advancement of the equipment, appliances, facilities, and quality of these hospitals, in these placements we charge an extra 100 USD. This is directly transferred to the institutions and centers to develop their facilities and service provision. One to two times per week, we perform medical outreach with a local organization.
