HOPE HOME: Health and Medicines Volunteer Program

Each year, many Nepalese die or suffer unnecessarily due to lack of health education and access to adequate health care resources. The sick in the mountain regions or villages sometimes die long before a physician can even diagnose. Because of the poor transportation, patients often have to be hand-carried in bamboo baskets to the nearest health center, often many miles from their village.

Individuals with special knowledge in the following areas are always needed.

Primary Care and General Medicine
General Dentistry/ Oral Surgery
Gynecology and Womens Health
Health Education
HIV/AIDS counseling

HOPE HOME: Volunteer Program is working to address these issues by sponsoring village level community health initiatives, to do this we need volunteers who can train Nepalese health workers as well as provide direct health care services.

Our Medicine projects are an invaluable preparation for a career in medicine. You will experience the stark contrast between Western medical practice and the realities of medicine in developing countries. Sadly, you will also see medical conditions that have remained untreated and have developed to an advanced pathological stage uncommon in developed countries

The key requirements in a medical volunteer are initiative, enthusiasm, and readiness to work in unfamiliar circumstances - a surgery with minimal equipment, an understaffed hospital, a clinic for leprosy or tuberculosis patients. This program has the potential to give you plenty of hands-on experience and exposure to the medical field.
