Volunteers’ duties will vary depending largely on your background and skill. Volunteer work on this project includes assisting with the running of a local health clinic where you will be involved with helping treatment of malaria, tuberculosis and syphilis which are the most common health ailments in Uganda. For example, if you are a registered nurse, medical doctor, lab technician, and paramedic or have a trained medical skill then you can participate in patient care such as diagnosing, injections, IV starts and lab work. If you are a mid-wife then you can work in the maternity ward assisting with prenatal and antenatal care. Finally, if you have an educational background in public health, then you can also participate in this project by helping the staff to record injections or immunizations, helping to dispense medications, beginning a painting or cleaning project, donating supplies, giving educational seminars on nursing skills, nutrition or any other subject that is required in the community you are placed. NB For the medical placement, volunteers need to be training (minimum two years hands on clinical experience) or qualified in a relevant medical field.
