The Program

The Uganda Medical Volunteer Placement encompasses a number of fields and medical professionals and students are sorely needed. This project aims to promote health awareness and to increase healthcare for rural people, decrease the prevalence of endemic diseases and improve village health by providing public health projects and promoting general health education and is ideally suited to individuals who come from a medical background. 

Health and medical projects are so rewarding for volunteers who are interested in improving public health and supporting local clinics and hospitals. Become a volunteer today, and create positive change in deprived areas, as well gain hands-on work experience.

Volunteers in this field work in health institutions— public or community health centres and hospitals; and health camps for prearranged schedule— responsible to distribute medicine, consult with citizens about health care, raise awareness of health and sanitation in the community. Participant’s role can range from observational to direct patient assistance, depending on their level of knowledge: outpatient department services (OPD); mean cell hemoglobin (MCH)— blood tests checking for anemia-based conditions; consultations; dispensing medications; injections/immunization; community outreach; antenatal services; psychology and social works; deliveries; and family planning etc.

Safety

We work very hard to ensure you are placed in safe environments while volunteering. Uganda has a democratic electoral process and a stable economy. You should use common sense as you would anywhere, particularly in the cities, but generally the Ugandan people are very warm and friendly towards foreigners, so you will be well looked after.

Contact to the Project Coordinator

Once your volunteer program begins, our local staff members will stay in constant touch with you. Volunteers staying in our Guest House will see our coordinator and staff daily. ASTCF projects are approximately 10-25 km from our Guest House (and usually located in rural settings outside of the cities). Our coordinator stays in touch with you via personal visits, telephone calls or emails, while the director of each project will serve as participants’ immediate supervisor.

Climate

Although generally equatorial, the climate is not uniform as the altitude modifies the climate. Lightweight clothing and rain wear is recommended as well as warmer clothing for the evenings (light jacket and/or light sweaters). A solid pair of walking shoes is highly recommended for trekking.

Application

There is no deadline for registering your program. However, we encourage participants to submit their applications or book their program as early in advance as possible due to visa requirements and other processes involved in coordinating placement. We recommended that participants submit their applications at least 12 weeks prior to the intended departure date. Last minute program placements are possible in some cases. Please give us a call so we can work with you to arrange your project.

Tagesablauf

Your program starts with an orientation, which begins on the morning of your chosen start date and covers everything you need to know for your volunteer program in Uganda – introduction to Uganda, culture and customs, rules and expectations, safety, language basics (luganda), travel opportunities, introduction to project and placement. The orientation will also give you a chance to meet other volunteers and swap contact details for weekend travel and socializing.

And after the orientation, the program coordinator will introduce you to your project and the local area. Your in-country coordinator will be more than happy to help you settle in and acclimatize; you'll feel at home in no time in this friendly, vibrant country.

Project schedules vary for each project. Most projects are from Monday to Friday. Most participants have the weekends and evenings off to sight see or explore Uganda on their own though ASTCF can arrange this for the volunteers.

Freizeitaktivitäten

As part of your experience, in the majority of our longer term projects, we give you the chance to take part in a range of different adventure activities.Uganda is a large and extremely diverse country in terms of both culture and nature. For three days you can undertake a safari that ushers you in the vast Bwindi Impenetrable National for Gorilla Trekking or the Murchison Falls National Park for Uganda Wildlife Tour or the famous Queen Elizabeth National Park for Uganda Bird Watching, or the Kibale National Park for Uganda Chimpanzee Trekking. You can also take a journey for Cultural Tour from Central to Eastern Uganda, to tour Kampala the Capital City of Uganda, Buganda and Busoga Kingdom, or to Western Uganda, to tour Bunyoro, Toro and Ankole royal monarchy, tradition and culture. The adventures will provide you with a break from your project, a chance to see your host country from a different perspective, and time to maybe live out a few dreams!
