Volunteer with us

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with On Call Africa

An overview:

Covid-19 has given us an opportunity to re-evaluate our volunteer involvement and strategy. We have moved away from delivering mobile health clinics to a more sustainable solution through health system strengthening.

On Call Africa’s main programmes in Zambia are:

  1. Improving access to, and quality of healthcare at rural healthcare facilities
  2. Strengthen community health programmes
  3. Influence policy and practice

Improve access to, and quality of healthcare at rural healthcare facilities:

We work with local partners and the Ministry of Health to develop scalable assessment tools, processes and programmes of work that enhance access to, and quality of healthcare at rural healthcare facilities in Zimba, Kazungula and Livingstone District.

We are seeking highly skilled medical professional volunteers to support the assessment of rural health facilities, contribute to co-design of interventions and support the capacity building and training of health workers based on identified needs. This work will help to inform our key recommendations to the Ministry of Health.

This new way of delivering systemic change ideally suits doctors who are looking for opportunities for reciprocal learning with health workers and community based volunteers in Zambia.
