Medicine in Tanzania

This programme allows volunteers to learn about many different aspects of medical treatments and healthcare in Tanzania. Volunteers are based in Arusha and live with local host families or at a guesthouse in the area. The work will be varied; you could be learning from local doctors in a large hospital one day and treating local Masai in a rural location the next.

You will have the chance to attend regular medical workshops and learn more about current local issues such as HIV and tropical diseases. Over the years Tanzania has tried hard to teach the younger generation about the need to be careful and stay healthy. We hope that during your two weeks you may be able to go to the local care centres and carry out fun and interactive activities with the children regarding different healthcare issues.

During the weekend you will get the opportunity to experience the breathtaking scenery in one of Tanzania's national parks. Those joining us on the four week programme will get extra visits and activities arranged during the other weekends.
