Summary

Art in Tanzania helps the small community clinics in the villages as well as larger hospitals. Tanzania health care is missing the professional medical staff. You can assist to develop healthcare but you also get great experience in how to work in a developing country with limited medical facilities.

Details

Art in Tanzania medical support team works in Dar es Salaam. We focus on Dar es Salaam Madale village medical support program as we can combine small village clinics with a larger hospital in the near vicinity.

Part of the duties is planning work to develop the program. For example, we look for to open a small neonatal clinic to serve the young mothers in the Madale village.

The medical program includes also HIV/AIDS counseling advocacy and events & testing.

The program needs different types of medical personnel but most of all nurses and doctors.  It is practical work in the clinics but also training of the Tanzanian medical staff and changing views.

This is an ongoing program and we can adjust the starting dates.

The working hours are 6-8 hours per day from Monday to Friday. This work is tutored by Mr. Kari Korhonen.

Volunteers are working in a team of international and Tanzanian multi-professional intern teams. We encourage innovation in the program approach.

Typical day

When you work at a medical clinic you commonly start your day moving from compound to the clinic around AM 8 after your breakfast. However some clinics they start their day shift as early as AM 6. Thereon it is full day medical work in the selected department(s). Commonly clinic interns have one or two days a week for planning and reporting and visibility tasks but this depends on your focus. You can also select public health tasks along with the medical clinic work. Then it is typical sports, advocacy, first aid courses, HIV AIDS work and similar.


When you attend Public Health work it is much focused on schools so they also dictate your working hours. It is seminars of different public health subjects as HIV AIDS, Environmental Health, Diabetes and other common diseases, nutrition and so on.

We highly recommend attending the Village sports program for free times.

Free-time activities

During your free time, you can enjoy low-cost safaris to Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and other National parks. You can join our groups climbing Mt Kilimanjaro and move on to relax at Zanzibar beaches. We have also a variety of one-day programs for short breaks as diving and snookering at the reefs, swimming with dolphins, rainforest trekking at Kilimanjaro, live African music, a variety of sports programs, craft making as batik making courses and so on. You will enjoy your stay in Tanzania.
