Overview of Healthcare Volunteer Project in Nepal

An overwhelming number of Nepalese never receive proper health care. Many of the state’s health centers—established to provide services in rural areas—are inadequately staffed and the staff lacks motivation due to many different factors. Global Crossroad gathers compassionate volunteer groups to help alleviate this problem in an effort to boost the quality of health care for disadvantaged Nepali people through this volunteer experience with the healthcare project in Nepal.

Role of Volunteer

As a volunteer with the healthcare project in Nepal, you will assist local doctors and medical staff with patient treatment. Also, volunteers may support hospital programs such as record keeping, sanitation, nutrition, or treatment of minor injuries.

Medical volunteers will shadow local doctors and learn mostly from observation. Due to inherent risk involved and medical regulations, volunteers cannot treat patients or become involved in surgery during the project.

Skills and Qualifications Needed

It is highly recommended that you have a proof of experience in a medical field, such as pre medical student ID, EMT or paramedic certification, or nursing or physician's credentials. You should at least be interested in healthcare and be compassionate about helping people. Insight into Nepalese language and culture is also valuable for this volunteering in healthcare in Nepal project – consider enrolling in our one-week language studies and cultural immersion program.
