As a medical volunteer in Tanzania you will be working in a local clinic or hospital in Arusha , helping to lessen the burden on the stretched resources of the medical service. These facilities are often stretched to breaking point and in desperate need of additional help. This is where you come in!
Your work will depend on your experience level, and you must have some medical experience in order to take part. We very much welcome medical and nursing students, especially as part of elective programmes, as you will have the opportunity to put into practice the skills you’ve learnt whilst helping those in real need.
You will spend the first few days shadowing a local doctor and learning about local techniques and common diseases. Once you feel comfortable you will have the opportunity to begin performing some basic procedures under supervision. General responsibilities for medical volunteers include taking rounds, prescribing and distributing medicines, dressing wounds, and assisting with births.
Community Outreach in Arusha
HIV, diabetes, respiratory infections, diarrheal diseases, malaria, and malnutrition continue to rank as the top 10 leading causes of death in Tanzania.
VHSO provides medical care and education to families that have limited to no access to what is basic, but essential healthcare. Teamed up with qualified medical volunteers, we hold weekly home visits and medical outreach efforts in high-need communities in and surrounding Arusha.
#1. During home visits, we are welcomed into the homes of Tanzanian families where we provide food, clothing, education, and hope to those in immediate need.
#2. During medical outreaches, we set up temporary health clinics in rural areas. These temporary health clinics allow people to receive medical attention and treatment from trained medical personnel that they normally would not have access to.
