Healthcare

Volunteer in healthcare projects around the globe with GVI and help communities gain access to clean water, sanitation and information on a variety of health topics such as maternal health, HIV/AIDS awareness and basic nutrition. In low come areas, such as the ones our projects are active in, communities are exposed to greater environmental health risks and thus face a higher risk of illness.

 

Whether you are a skilled volunteer, are on a gap year from school, a student, on a career break or on an extended holiday, there is important work for you to be involved in, as you make a critical contribution to the healthcare access in local communities.

GVI’s volunteers play a vital part in the success and sustainability of our healthcare programmes. Without volunteer support, we would be unable to continue making a difference in these communities. Through setting up clinics, providing access to clean water and sanitation, educating local communities and providing capacity, we can make long-term positive impacts on the health of disadvantaged communities.
