Volunteer in the Caribbean with an International Health NGO

International Health Initiative (IHI) is a Boston based organization currently working on implementing sustainable healthcare solutions in a community in Dominican Republic, Constanza. We do two trips a year in which we provide services in different healthcare areas (surgery, disability, chronic disease, sexual health and water). We train and educate local providers on updated and modern practices, do health care screenings and referrals, implement health fairs and are currently doing water research in the areas that don't have access to water. We are also collaborating with two PCVs (we are their project partner) to implement sustainable practices.

We are beginning our recruitment for the 2016 trips (January and May). Those who join will have the opportunity to get involved in a new non-profit and potentially become part of the governing board (we are in need of people with development experience). We are also looking for any Spanish, French or Creole fluent speakers for the trips.
