As a health sector volunteer you will become familiar with the challenges faced within the diverse health care systems of South America. Many health care organizations are under-funded and benefit from both physical help and knowledge of foreign doctors and nurses. The extra help from volunteers is greatly appreciated by both the care givers and patients alike. Persons in the health care community such as doctors, nurses, medical and pre-medical students would benefit the most from this type of volunteer work.

Volunteer Opportunities may include:

working for independently run or government funded health clinics.
working for mental institutions.
working with the elderly.
promoting HIV awareness and sexual education amongst teenagers.
