ORGANIZATION: Tanzania Host Volunteer

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

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 80 USD a week. 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. This involves traveling to a rural village, typically over rough dirt roads. We will either visit several homes and provide medical treatment to the families, or travel to one location where families will be informed to come to us. This program is funded by the volunteers. Each time we do medical outreach, there will be a fee to cover the cost of transportation, as well as the per diem cost of having a community health worker or government doctor in attendance. We sometimes contribute to transportation for patients who need to travel to the hospital immediately. The fee depends on the number of volunteers, as well as the type and number of vehicles we must bring. In the past, it has ranged from approximately $5 to $15 per volunteer.

Our medical programs provide you with the opportunity to expand your skills, a deeper understanding of global health issues, and will help you learn how to provide the best medical care possible with limited resources. For this program we are looking for people with an open mind, a willingness to learn, and a kind heart.

We are open to doctors, nurses, medical or nursing students with two years of school, paramedics, EMT’s, and CNA’s. Exact placement will depend on your skills and experience. Let us know your specialty, and we will ensure that you have a wonderful placement. In addition, we ask for a copy of your transcript showing your school experience or a license, two reference letters from a professor or supervisor in the medical field, and a CV or resume explaining your experience. This program has an additional fee of $80 per week to cover supervision and logistics of placement.
