Volunteer at a busy community clinic in the Chelston area of Lusaka.  Experienced health care professionals as well as medical/nursing students are welcome to support the in- patient services at the clinic.  Patient count can vary from day to day. However volunteers will have a physician to shadow and work with. Volunteers need to bring their own medical equipment, gloves, lab coat, medical scrubs and appropriate shoes.  As a medical/nurse/dental volunteer you should expect to shadow, as well as have some hands on work.  Expect to be part of a team. These program are as much about learning about universal health care, as it is to offer hands on assistance to the local medical staff who you will be working with. 

All volunteers are required to pay US$70 administrative fee for clinical placement. This extra fee is collected and paid locally to the ABV staff in Lusaka.

Medical Professionals and Medical/Nursing Students: Pain Management, basic nursing care for terminally ill patients, teaching primary care givers (family) nursing procedures, counseling, HIV education and information and possible job creation.
