Health and Medicines

Healthcare Improvement Program

Every year, many Nepalese people die or needlessly suffer because of lack of access to health care resources and a general lack of health education. In remote areas, the sick often die long before they can be treated by a health professional and are sometimes carried for days on rudimentary stretchers to healthcare centres miles from home.

We are seeking volunteers with understanding in the following fields;
  • Health education

  • Primary care

  • General medicine

  • General dentistry

  • Oral surgery

  • Womenís health

  • Pediatrics
Best Volunteer Nepal aims to provide sustainable solutions to the lack of health care and health education in Nepal by providing training to local people and sponsorship for village level projects as well as offering direct healthcare services.

Our volunteers can incorporate their volunteer placements into an internship program supporting their tertiary study. Individuals will gain an invaluable understanding of the drastic differences between Western medicine and health practice and health care in developing countries.

To volunteer in one of our health placements you need to be enthusiastic and be able to take initiative. You must be prepared to work in unfamiliar circumstances and often without adequate equipment; in understaffed clinics and with patients suffering from tuberculosis and leprosy. You will ideally be a qualified medical professional or be studying to become one.

Volunteers will stay with a host family, eating traditional Nepalese meals and learning about Nepalís unique culture. Our host families are respected members of the local community and will usually have at least one member who can communicate in English.
