Volunteering abroad on a Public Health programme with Projects Abroad will provide you with valuable work experience whilst contributing to improving the health and quality of lives in developing communities.

Volunteering on a Public Health project is a fantastic and rewarding experience and is also a great addition to your CV or university application. Whether you're a university hopeful, studying for a degree in medicine or healthcare, or a qualified medical practitioner you will have in important role to play.

Public Health projects are predominantly outreach based; volunteers are involved in visiting local communities and institutions, such as schools and orphanages, to promote health and physical well-being. You will assist with general health tests, such as blood pressure and BMI, screen for common diseases, treat minor wounds and provide education about general health issues.

Wonderful experience

I joined a health project in Cambodia and really loved the whole experience. I got to immerse into the local culture, travel and provide meaningful healthcare assistance and also help with education.

I really liked the project

I participated on a healthcare program in Cambodia with Projects Abroad which was well organized and we always had a coordinator with us. Rehabilitation with our patients went really well and all of our patients were very pleased of our help. It was so nice to see how grateful people were for our help. The apartment I stayed was nice and clean. The food was amazing and all the staff was very friendly and helpful.
