Health and medicine education projects in India

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

Resources remain a persistent problem in developing countries, with inadequate investment in facilities, medicine, equipment and wages for trained health care staff to work in remote rural areas.
As with any volunteer program the nature of work depends on the needs of the community in rural and urban areas of Tamilnadu and Karnataka State, India. The volunteers work primarily with women and children delivering health awareness education in basic first aid, sanitation and nutrition – at different stages of development including pregnancy. Make community health visits and with the assistance of local childcare centres check that children are up to date with vaccinations. Deliver health awareness training through small independent projects and give short talks in partner institutions aimed at empowering communities to acquire the knowledge required to make quality health decisions.
