One of the largest problems Ugandan communities face through is a lack of medical knowledge, supplies and education. The aim of this project is to increase access to quality healthcare in Uganda, providing support to under-resourced local clinics, medical centers and hospitals. These placements encompass a wide range of medical fields and offer in and out-patient services, supporting a high number of patients each day.
This project is well suited to volunteers who are looking to gain international healthcare experience in placements that are underfunded and under-resourced. As a medical volunteer in Uganda you will be working in a local clinic or hospital supported by our local staffs helping to lessen the burden on the stretched resources of the medical service.
