Medical and Health Volunteer Program in Kenya

Advance Africa volunteer in Kenya opportunities are available for international volunteers in orphanages, schools, hospitals and community medical clinics.

We work directly with the projects where we send you and where your contribution will make a real and meaningful difference.

You will be offered a personal and customisable placement service. You will be supported throughout the duration of your placement.

We use our local knowledge and spend time in the country meeting your requirements. Customised placements that volunteers have asked for in the past include volunteering in mobile clinics, volunteer in mental health clinics, amongst the handicapped, hospice volunteering, HIV/Aids or doing volunteer work in specific areas like nutrition, dental services and working amongst the Masai, Pokot and Samburu.

Medical and Health Volunteer Program
Volunteers in this area are given responsibilities depending on their medical qualifications. Qualified doctors and nurses can carry full day to day treatment of various diseases.

Medical students work under the supervision of qualified medical personnel. Volunteers who do not have medical training help in packing of drugs, painting etc.

The volunteers can work in the areas of maternal health, mental health, surgery, laboratories, counseling and testing. Volunteers can work in clinics located in the slums of Nairobi, or in hospitals located elsewhere.

HIV/Aids Volunteer Program
The HIV/Aids epidemic in Africa is unusual in its scope and magnitude. Health workers in Kenya are laboring to cope with an unprecedented surge in the number of HIV/Aids patients. As a HIV/Aids volunteer, you will help us mount an effective response in meeting the needs of our target communities.

Your HIV/Aids volunteer service will include homecare visits to the slums bringing vital supplies of food, medicine, and providing basic medical care. HIV/Aids volunteers help decrease the spread of HIV by raising awareness and promoting access to medical care.

Volunteers also provide emotional support and foster compassion for people living with HIV/Aids in the community. Volunteers educate and counsel the community, schools and individuals.

AIDS orphans are often neglected in Africa. As a volunteer in this program, you will visit HIV/Aids clinics, and help meet the needs of AIDS orphans.
