Highlights

The position is ideal for a person interested in working with a community health center focus in health promotion and prevention. 

This Health Center has many medical specialties, but they also give a lot of importance to preventive medicine and the promotion of health in the neighborhood. The doctors and nurses organize campaigns and workshops for the community; visit their homes in order to understand the social and economical root of health issues, and to help more effectively.

Volunteer’s Role

Volunteer's tasks will depend on their commitment and interests, anyway, volunteers will start as spectators so they can learn how the health center and the professionals work. All areas, activities, and workshops are open to the volunteer who can participate both in the activities inside the center and those carried out in the field according to their interests. Moreover, volunteers learn a lot about the Argentine Health System, how to work in a team different from what you learn in universities, you can share your own knowledge as well as learn a lot from the people you share your experience with

For this reason, an intermediate level of Spanish is required, so that the volunteer can become more involved with those who work in the center and with the community. It is imperative that the volunteer develops an outlook of communicating with people, taking into account that this is an institution that serves the community and that their concern is to understand the people living there and their health problems.

Why is this project important for the community?

This health center has a comprehensive concept of "health" that goes beyond the biological fact of the illness. Health is understood as a process affected by various causes, including poverty. Therefore, doctors work in an interdisciplinary way, as a team, that integrates the different specialties for better care. Furthermore, they work to promote community participation in preventing and finding solutions.

Along these lines, the health center works in an integral way with the neighborhood without leaving aside the context of the population to which it serves.  This perspective seeks to break with the idea of ​​the doctor as the owner of the truth and tries to demonstrate that scientific knowledge along with popular knowledge can have a greater impact and better results.

Among the specialties that the center includes are: Pediatrics, general medicine, gynecology, obstetrics, odontology, psychology, social work, nutrition, psychopedagogy, and nursing. They also organize different workshops and activities for the community.

Availability

The Health center is open from 8 to 17 from Monday to Friday. It is recommended that volunteers go during the morning, which is when most of the activities happen, but the same may change and will be agreed with the Director of the Health Center, Fernando, who will also be their coordinator in the project.

Location

This health centre is located in Jose Leon Suarez, on the outskirts of Buenos Aires. Its easily accessible through public transportation (train and buses), about one hour from Buenos Aires downtown. The first day, you visit the Institution accompanied by the volunteer's general coordinator so you can know how the get there, to be aware of the facilities and staff. Then you have a meeting with the director in order to arrange a precise schedule and activities.

Dagelijkse activiteiten

 The hours are flexible and adaptable, they will often depend on the needs of the organization each week and the availability of the volunteer.
