Zanzibar Heath care Volunteering
a medical, or nursing volunteer in Zanzibar,
you with be placed with one of the hospitals
or health care centers on the Island. We
also have wonderful international volunteer
placement opportunities for dentists and
dental technicians and hygienists in a number
of Zanzibar Island hospital dental units. We
work with local health care facilities and
are able to find placement for you in almost
any department of your interest.
Generally you will assist/support the doctor/dentists or clinician in the normal routine of medical work e.g. taking vital signs, dressing wounds, taking patients history, counseling patients, providing assurance and moral support to patients family, disbursing minor medicines etc.
All mainstream health care volunteers (doctors, nurses, dentists, etc) who wish to be based in hospitals and smaller medical facilities need proof of training such as practicing license, etc. Students are pre-program students, and paramedics, are allowed as interns and not volunteers. Students need to show student ID.
