We are looking for hard-working individuals who believe change is possible- not just for a week, but for a lifetime. OneWorld Health’s short-term medical teams are a vital component of our vision to empower communities to achieve long-term improvements in health and quality of life.

Several times a year, OneWorld Health sends teams of medical and non-medical volunteers to serve the communities surrounding our project sites in Central America and East Africa. During the development phases of our medical centers, these teams provide consistent care to the region, build a foundation of quality care and advocate for the clinic that is to come.

Once our medical centers are in operation, these teams support the centers through continuing to provide quality care, training and patient referrals. OneWorld Health’s short-term trips pave the way for the success of our long-term projects, while leaving no volunteer the same upon their return home.

Organizational Base: Charleston, South Carolina
