Healthcare Volunteering Abroad
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.
Our healthcare programs often attract skilled volunteers, but rest assured, although previous experience is advantageous, it is not necessary. Our healthcare programs are open to all people, from career breakers to students on gap years. An added bonus for students: we offer academic credits to students, ask your Country Expert if you qualify for this. If you are looking to boost your healthcare career in the right direction, join our diverse community development internships abroad.
Please note that GVI has a Child and Vulnerable Adult Protection Policy that is implemented on each program. As part of the policy, participants will be required to complete a DPS check, Police Clearance, or a National Background Check where necessary, and to comply by the policy.
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.
