The Community Healthcare Awareness program falls under our Public Health Improvement theme. If you are looking for a community-oriented program in Public Health that involves outreach and engagement with locals and does not require prior clinical experience or training then the Community Healthcare Awareness Program is the right choice for you. You’ll mainly work with social workers and public health officials in different settings that support communities in dire need of access to quality healthcare.
Volunteering in healthcare can be a great opportunity for you to really make a difference. You can join varying projects in areas such as health education, humanitarian responses, AIDS prevention, reproductive health and general hygiene and nutrition. By joining our Community Healthcare Awareness volunteer program, you are offering the healthcare sector necessary support in under-served and marginalized communities. In many communities in Uganda, medical resources are scarce and access to healthcare is limited. Many people in these communities are unaware of how they can support their health and avoid preventable diseases.
Volunteers in this program work hand in hand with local partners on the ground to provide essential knowledge sharing, counseling and awareness on pertinent health issues. This program is perfect for medics and non-medical volunteers who are compassionate about creating a meaningful impact towards the health of local communities. This program often requires outreach activities, talks and interaction with patients in their homes or communities.
