Volunteer work opportunities in Africa exist for physicians, nurses and other medical professionals.
The core Mission of US Doctors For Africa is to promote the flow of volunteer physicians, nurses and other medical professionals to Africa to provide desperately needed capacity building and direct medical services to populations ravaged by disease, malnutrition and inadequate medical care. USDFA actively pursues this mission by encouraging individuals to volunteer their time and expertise to this critical humanitarian cause. The organization partners with carefully screened medical organizations in Africa and matches their needs with the available volunteer base. Our goal is to make the volunteering experience a valuable, safe and gratifying one.
In order to provide urgent medical services to historically under-served nations of the African continent, US Doctors For Africa orchestrates efforts that depend on the commitment and expertise of the healthcare community. The commitment we require, however, is a reasonable and flexible one, designed to allow for the widest range of potential volunteers, while also providing opportunities for sustained obligation.
Volunteer work opportunities also exist for operations staff interested in contributing their time and energy to organizational development in the United States and abroad. Individuals with experience in communications, web site/IT development, non-profit fundraising, and general operations activities are encouraged to apply.
It is our vision that, through the goodwill and skill of volunteers and the support of donors, we can make a difference where it counts the most. Join US Doctors For Africa in our critical mission of providing desperately needed services in humanitarian relief to the people of one of the world's most neglected continents.
