Do you love taking part in humanitarian projects to make a real difference in people’s lives? Do you dream of traveling the world and leaving a positive impact on the places you visit? Medical volunteers in Tanzania achieve all these dreams by helping people who really need it.

Unfortunately, the basic medical care that we often take for granted at home is often lacking in rural communities in Tanzania. The people of Tanzania face the daily threat of many potentially life-threatening medical issues including contracting HIV, malaria, measles, cholera, typhoid, yellow fever and tuberculosis. To change this situation, RCDP invites volunteers like you!

As a volunteer, you will be placed in rural health posts or community clinics. Your basic role will be to conduct general check-ups and examine the patients, assist the doctors, support the public outreach and educational programs, organize and develop educational seminars, spread awareness amongst the general population on the topics related to healthcare, and assist the local hospitals with administrative tasks. Your work will contribute greatly to the wellbeing of people in need, as well as give you invaluable medical experience that will greatly benefit you as well.

Important Information

Volunteers need previous healthcare work experience or education. Regardless of experience, all applicants must have the passion and drive to want to help people with their medical problems and want to make a positive change in their lives.
