Haiti Village Health welcomes international volunteers and benefits greatly from their services. There are two main options available for volunteers, both medical and non-medical.
As HVH’s primary mandate is healthcare, we have need for a wide range of healthcare volunteers but can also accommodate those wanting to volunteer who do not have a medical background. Volunteers can come either independently or as part of a group/team.
There are 2 ways in which you can volunteer with HVH:
1) Pre-scheduled 10 day medical team trips, with primary focus of conducting outreach prenatal and pediatric mobile clinics. Trips must maintain ratio of 1 MD per every 2 RN, plus one extra RN and 2 non-medical support staff.
2) Special Projects/Research. Volunteers must be proactive and independent individuals with specific interests. They will develop their projects in advance of their trip in coordination with HVH’s volunteer and research coordinator. Minimum of 1 month commitment required.
** for special projects, research or internships – please complete the research questionnaire along with your application. You must have a project or research idea in mind before arriving in Haiti. We have a research coordinator who can assist interested individuals but the onus is on the individual to create their topic with HVH guidance to ensure the need and relevance of the topic.
