The fifth Millenium Development Goal for Tanzania states; Improve maternal health. Nevertheless, it remains a challenge to reach the targeted maternal mortality level (UNDP, 2012). The National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty II reports that it is crucial to improve the health service delivery system and that there is a shortage of health professionals in the country, even though the increased enrollment in medical schools (NSGRP II, 2010).
Ujamaa Volunteer Experience partners with several hospitals and medical centers including flying medical service that accept volunteers. We are happy to contact the medical placements in advance to see where there will be an open placement for a volunteer/volunteers. Depending on the volunteer’s interests and areas of expertise we will, together with the hospital personnel, try to find a suitable placement for him/her.
