Aussie Action Abroad – Healthcare work in Nepal

Health Team 16 info sheet

Volunteer your healthcare experience in Nepal

An opportunity to meet, share, observe, teach, understand and appreciate our Nepali colleagues in a variety of health provider settings.

What will the venture involve?

Depending on the skills of the team and the interests   they wish to explore, Aussie Action Abroad (AAA) will be able to provide a number of experiences for health professionals and/or educators who would like to contribute their knowledge or expertise to the communities in Nepal.

Arrangements can be made in Kathmandu at the Teaching, Maternity, Orthopaedic hospitals or in Pokhara, Fishtail and Green Pastures Hospitals. As well as the Rainbow Children’s Home and Community Based Rehabilitation Service (CBRS). Rural health posts and mother’s groups are also possible to be included.

Opportunities exist for doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, speech pathologists, chiropractors, osteopaths, paramedics, in fact anyone within the health sector.

In reality however, it is us who learn the magic of the Nepali experience. AAA partners with a number of Nepali organisations to develop projects and experiences beneficial to both our volunteers and the Nepalese communities we have come to love and serve.
