This program is especially for Doctors, nurses, nursing students and medical students. Volunteers will work at hospitals and community health clinics in Kathmandu, Chitwan or Pokhara. Volunteer will be helping doctor or health assistance at the clinic performing tasks like dressing wounds, administering shots, drawing blood, holding babies while they are being treated, helping to screen and organize patients. They can also assist local staff with getting medicines/supplies, and generally helping out in whatever capacity you might be needed.
This program offers you a wonderful chance to support the work of local doctors and nurses in a country where health care is a major issue, and the number of trained staff in rural areas is low. As such your presence could make a huge difference to a community.
