Support hospitals in Arusha, North Tanzania

Pays d’action: Tanzanie, Afrique
Type d’activité: Santé & Médecine
With us, you have the opportunity to support two different hospitals in Arusha. You can get an insight into the Tanzanian health system, which is very different from what you know from home. Most Tanzanians do not have health insurance and therefore have little access to good medical care. Your help is needed here!

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

The working hours are usually from Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm. The projects can be reached by public transport from the volunteer accommodation.

The health care system in Tanzania is a bit different from what you are used to in your home country. Even though there is modern medical care, access to it depends on the income and financial possibilities of the patients. . We work together with a hospital and a small infirmary where you can assist the nurses and doctors in caring for the patients, help with operations and do many other jobs where a helping hand is needed. Your tasks will depend on your previous knowledge, experience and the current needs of the hospitals You will not have to do anything you are not comfortable with. By the way, internships in these hospitals are recognized by universities!

The large district hospital covers all areas of modern medicine, including

  • Paediatrics,
  • HIV / Aids,
  • clinic for tuberculosis and malaria,
  • Ophthalmology and Dental medicine,
  • Mental health and physiotherapy,
  • a maternity unit
  • Operating room

In the small health station, mainly locally resident Maasai are treated. HIV, tuberculosis, obstetrics, ambulant surgeries and laboratory tests are the order of the day.

As a trained nurse and doctor, you can broaden your knowledge as you are given meaningful tasks in assisting doctors and other nurses. The local doctors are very helpful and you can assist them, for example, in treating diseases that no longer exist in the western world, which can be a special experience.
In Tanzania, there is a lack of many medicines, examination equipment, education and much more. For this reason, the work of volunteers is very much appreciated.

Support our hospitals and help us to improve medical care for Tanzanians. Get to know a breathtaking country and a new culture.
