Our Public Health in the Philippines project gives volunteers wishing to experience an aspect of community outreach the opportunity to gain valuable working experience whilst learning about the public healthcare system in the Philippines.
This project is suitable for those who are taking part in a gap year and are interested in gaining some medical related experience before they begin their careers. Regardless of your experience level, you will play an essential role in providing care and support to children and adults who struggle with accessing healthcare through our outreach programmes.
This project is based in and around the city of Bogo, which was greatly affected by Typhoon Haiyan in 2013 and also in other northern parts of Cebu Island. It is run in partnership with the City Health Office (CHO) of Bogo and they have already reached 29 Barangays, which are local villages in the Philippines.
As a volunteer you will participate in medical campaigns in orphanages, schools, churches, villages and community centres and address topics such as HIV / AIDS and tropical diseases. You will also possibly assist with vaccinations, consultations and check-ups, blood testing, vaccinations and assistance with the delivery of babies
Volunteers usually work Monday to Friday from 8am until 5pm with weekends free for relaxation, socialising or exploring the Philippines. You will stay with a local Filipino host family during the duration of your stay and will experience their amazing and friendly culture.
