IT WAS CHALLENGING AND IMMENSELY REWARDING

Healthcare in Madagascar has suffered terribly because of the political paralysis that emerged after the 2009 coup. The transitional authority was largely redundant and did little to remobilise the state bureaucracy and as such many of Madagascar’s public hospitals find themselves in a ruinous state.

If you are a qualified or a studying medical practitioner you can join Frontier in Hell-Ville for the challenge of a life time, offering frontline medical care in a busy partner hospital. It was challenging and immensely rewarding working alongside seasoned local medical professions and learning about their lives and their struggles in such an under-resourced environment.

You will join the staff at Hell-Ville’s General Hospital, where Maternity, A & E, ICU and surgical patients are all catered for, offering valuable experience and enthusiasm to a beleaguered but passionate team.

There will also be scope to engage in outreach and educational services, delivering pop-up clinics in isolated communities and around town, as well as leading sessions with young people in such areas as healthy living and sexual health awareness.
