India 2011

Australian health professionals required for life changing appointments in India

Imagine not being able to go to the dentist when you have a toothache or to the doctor when you're unwell. This is the reality many people in India today face. They simply don't have access to everyday health services that most Australians take for granted.

Australian not for profit organisation, Equal Health, provides free multi-disciplinary medical health services to people in developing countries who would generally not have access to such services.

Working with Australian health professional volunteers and our Indian partner agencies, we bring relief from dental pain, sight to the blind, freedom of movement for people with disabilities and improved health - through providing free multi-disciplinary health care such as dentistry, optometry, allied health and general medical.

Equal Health is currently recruiting volunteers for the India 2011 Camp on 4 to 20 February 2011 inclusive.

Opportunities for short-term meaningful and life changing travel experiences are now available for health professionals who wish to volunteer their skills and services, to provide access to health care for people in need in India.

Placements are based in various locations in India including Tamil Nadu and West Bengal and require a $3,500 tax deductible donation.
