Access Health Africa connects and places physicians, dentists, and medical & dental students to our projects in local hospitals in Malawi.
Our goal is to provide specialist resources that may not be otherwise available, including but not only: cardiology, pulmonology, pediatric surgery, dentistry. Participants are involved not only in providing hands-on medical treatments but also provide supplemental medical education to local medical, nursing, and dental schools, as well as outreach health education & services when needed. If you are a medical provider, dental provider, nurse, student, or just simply interested in volunteering in Malawi, please contact us!
