Medical Volunteer Trip in Tanzania


Medical Volunteer Trip in Tanzania: Tanzania is an East African country known for its vast wilderness areas. They include the plains of Serengeti National Park, a safari mecca populated by the “big five” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino), and Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa’s highest mountain. Offshore lie the tropical islands of Zanzibar, with Arabic influences, and Mafia, with a marine park home to whale sharks and coral reefs

Medical volunteers in Tanzania are always welcomed with open arms. Whether you’re a medical student or want to do volunteer nursing in Arusha, or Tanzania in general; there are plenty of healthcare projects that need extra support. Especially in rural areas! Volunteer for a medical mission trip and support local doctors and hospitals facing problems like:


  • #1. Outdated equipment
  • #2. Medication shortages
  • #3. Insufficient staff
  • #4. Growing numbers of patients


Usual tasks in a healthcare volunteer job depend on the knowledge of the volunteers. As a medical volunteer in Tanzania, you will:


  • #1. Help local nurses on their rounds,
  • #2. Hand out medication
  • #3. Work in the maternity ward
  • #4. Work in the psychotherapy department
  • #5. Give hygiene and illness prevention talks in local community centers  as part of health education/medical outreach program.


A medical mission trip is a perfect way to gain practical experience and do something for the community. Medical volunteers who are studying healthcare can gain university credits during their volunteer experience. You may need to check with your university what the requirements are.
