Heathcare and healthcare education in Sigatoka in the Fiji Islands

The Healthcare and Healthcare Education Project in Sigatoka in Fiji
Contribute to making the locals healthy! Because they mostly live in villages, they have little or no knowledge of hygiene or of a balanced and nutritious diet. This leads to a wide range of diseases, like high blood sugar, cholesterol, hypertension etc.

This project needs the skills of both established medical and healthcare professionals and those who are interested in teaching basic first-aid and personal hygiene. Come and make a difference while enjoying the "home to happiness" islands!

This is not an internship, but you will get work experience on this project.
