A volunteer(s) is needed to design, manage, and implement health training and/or outreach programs in our local community.
Helps International (HINT) has run health outreach programs in the past, thanks to the work of volunteers experienced in the medical profession. HINT does not offer permanent health or medical programs, but instead relies on the support of volunteers to host short-term training programs. Historically, most of HINT's programs have focused on HIV/AIDS prevention, as it remains a critical problem in Cameroon. It is estimated that 5.4% of the population of Cameroon is HIV positive. That represents approximately 510,000 people, 43,000 of whom are children. Roughly 240,000 children are orphaned in Cameroon due to AIDS.
