THE PROJECT

This project is based out of La Ceiba- a beautiful city located in the northern part of the Honduras right on the ocean front. This program is designed for medical students and professionals who either have worked in the area of HIV/AIDS or who possess an interest in this area. The Honduras has experienced a rapid increase in HIV infections so as a volunteer you will be working in La Ceiba and the surrounding areas treating and counselling patients.


YOUR ROLE AS A VOLUNTEER

Volunteers in this project will be involved in various care and support activities. Some activities may include referring patients to public or private sources of more advanced care where the patient can be diagnosed and treated for TB and other sexually transmitted infections as well as given information on the prevention of transmission between mother and child. Volunteers may counsel patients on the prevention of HIV and other STD’s, as well as diagnose and treat minor opportunistic infections and palliative care. Additionally some volunteers will help design, use complementary IEC materials (information, education and communication materials), and work in IEC activities to reduce the stigma of being HIV-positive and combat discrimination.


WHAT THE PROJECT NEEDS

  • Basic to intermediate level of Spanish comprehension*
  • Minimum 18 years of age
  • Interest and knowledge about HIV/ AIDS
  • Social and outgoing personality
  • Work experience as a doctor or nurse
  • Minimum time commitment of 4 weeks is recommended

*Volunteers must have a minimum comprehension level of Spanish in order to work effectively within this project. Volunteers work closely with the local health care professionals and with the patients; therefore it is important that you are able to communicate proficiently in order to help and treat others, as well as receive the full, rich experience that this project has to offer. Therefore it is recommended that you take Spanish lessons at the local Spanish school prior to commencing your volunteer work. Please contact us for additional information.
