Opportunities for healthcare workers to volunteer overseas
1 June 2008. Related: Other news.
The International Center for Equal Healthcare Access (ICEHA) is recruiting experienced healthcare providers willing to volunteer for 6-12 weeks in developing countries. Using clinical mentoring techniques, volunteers provide HIV bed-side training to local healthcare providers. All expenses, including plane ticket and local living expenses, are paid.
ICEHA is an international not-for-profit organization that engages healthcare professionals to rapidly transfer their expertise on HIV care and infectious diseases to colleagues in developing countries, using an innovative method of clinical mentoring. Unlike other organizations, ICEHA volunteer clinical mentors do not provide patient care directly. Instead, they equip local caregivers with the skills needed to take care of their own patients. As a result, thousands of patients receive HIV care when none existed before, care delivered by their own healthcare providers, within existing resource limitations.
