Activity: Medical, Health, Medicine
Country: India
Duration: 2 weeks to 2 months
Approx Costs: 750 to 1750 $ Dollars (US)

Nursing and medical students, as well as medically trained healthcare professions, are placed in community clinics and participate in slum health outreach projects throughout in Jaipur.  

It is a sad fact -  In India most people die of treatable diseases.  Many health facilities have very poor hygienic standards and most locals cannot afford treatment.   With the level of poverty growing with the population it makes this an uphill battle for good healthcare.   Since most of the medical centres are in impoverished neighbourhoods the patients are poor and cannot afford the expensive treatment in good hospitals.

Our volunteers will learn about the current healthcare system in India while offering limited hands on assistance to the medical staff.  Tasks are based on your current level of education, qualifications and experience, and understanding of Hindi.   Some volunteer duties are as follows:  Taking vitals such as blood pressure, health talks about hygiene & nutrition, maternity welfare checks, distributing medication or take patient records.
