About the Program

For those able to afford it, the private healthcare system in South Africa meets developed world standards. However, the public healthcare system, which serves 80% of the population, faces serious challenges. The urbanization of the country has put serious strain on the hospitals in Cape Town: many have too few beds, doctors and medical supplies. Infectious diseases like typhoid fever and hepatitis are prevalent, largely because of poor public health, and HIV/AIDS remaining a devastating plague.
Volunteers work in community clinics serving poor populations. They share their expertise and insights with the local staff and, as needed and allowed by the local nurses and doctors, help to provide care. Volunteers live and work in Cape Town or the surrounding areas.

Structure and Facilities 

  • Most of the medical projects are understaffed and there is a lack of resources and therefore this can be a very stressful and challenging environment to work in 
  • Government funded facilities for people who cannot afford private medical care 
  • No major operations are done here

Journée Typique

Usual working days go from 7:00 AM - 4:00 PM and include the following activities.
  • Observation (doctors, nurses and pharmacy) 
  • Supporting the general staff
  • Helping with rehabilitation
  • Sharing health information and updating patient files
  • Clinical Assistant and Prep-Room duties
  • Baby Clinic: Taking weight, height, temperature readings,etc.
  • Other tasks that might come up

Activités de Loisir

Cape Town is one of Africa’s most popular tourist destinations for a reason. Its beaches, such as Camp’s Bay, are world renown, and Cape Town’s beachfront and downtown areas are lively at any time. During the day it is easy to find artisans selling their crafts or outdoor cafes to enjoy the Mediterranean climate. At night, there are many excellent bars, clubs and restaurants where locals and foreigners can relax and socialize.
There are numerous cultural sites to visit, including the Bo-Kaap neighborhood and the Castle of Good Hope. They reflect Cape Town’s long history and help explain why the city is one of the most multicultural in the word. Robben Island, the infamous prison where political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, were held during apartheid is a difficult but necessary stop. For outdoor lovers, Cape Town has a wide mix of opportunities. Table Mountain is a breathtaking spot to visit, and there are many nearby hills, mountains and trails that make for great biking, climbing and hiking. Many, like Lion’s Head Mountain, also offer stunning views over the city and ocean below. Join in on tours down the Garden Route and a Game Drive to spot the Big 5!
