Healthcare can be both very expensive and hard to access for poor and less privileged Peruvians who often struggle to make 'ends meet' let alone pay for health care, you can sign up to make a difference.

Poverty creates a large barrier to the acquisition of healthcare in general, but in a country where a large percentage of the population are struggling to make 'ends meet' on a daily basis such as Peru, this effect is accentuated. The Peruvian Government has authorized our program partner to place medical students and professionals in their clinics and hospitals. These dispensaries and hospitals have very basic equipment and facilities. Volunteers are placed in a hospital or dispensary based on previous medical training and experience. 

In order to participate on this program, volunteers must have at least an intermediate level of Spanish. N.B. For the Peru medical volunteer program, volunteers need to be training or qualified in a relevant medical field. Naturally, volunteers are required to present a copy of their qualifications and certificates to our program partner on arrival in Peru.
