Midwifery

Volunteers should expect the slow working rhythm and the total absence of timetables, which is common in these locations. Pregnant patients come to the prenatal department for regular check ups before and after delivery they are being given counseling of family planning and how to take care of their baby. There is a pediatric department in the health center where children under 5 years old are taken care.

Volunteers needed in support of two health centers in the Bulenga community. These health facilities offer maternity services and diagnosis, treatment of malaria, typhoid, diarrhea, as well as provide contraceptive services, immunization for infants, antenatal care, ultrasound scan services, and HIV/AIDS counseling and testing.  Volunteer will also be able to participate in health education focused on providing expectant and nursing teen mothers who visit these health centers.  Main topics include family planning and reproductive health, dietary nutrition for babies, and prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV/AIDS. Weekly immunization services are provided at the health center, as well as some outreach into remote village areas.
