Medical and Public Health Volunteer Programs
While South Africa’s private health care is second to none, most of its citizens rely on a public health care system that is subject to severe strain. The key challenges are inadequate resources, staff shortages and the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Medical and public health volunteers in Cape Town, therefore, can play a valued and meaningful role in research-based, clinical health care or public health programs, in fields such as epidemiology, health education, rural and urban health care, public health policy and HIV/AIDS.
