Are you looking for a new challenge? Interested in tropical medicine? Looking for a chance to make a difference? Australian Doctors International (ADI) needs you!
Volunteering with ADI is a life changing experience. You will have medical opportunities simply not available here in Australia. As a doctor on remote patrol with ADI in Papua New Guinea, no two days are ever the same. You may be helping women give birth safely, assessing emergency medical needs, diagnosing malaria and TB, presenting health education messages in schools and treating survivors of domestic violence. Your clinical skills and resourcefulness will be put to the test while you work in communities so remote there is no other health care available. You will diagnose and treat medical conditions not found in Australia. Your managerial and administration skills will be called upon as you supervise and help to train local health care workers.
You will not be facing these challenges alone. Instead you will be part of a welcoming and supportive local team as well as being supported by our staff in the Sydney office. To find out more about this amazing experience, see the attached document About Doctor Volunteering with ADI attached.
ADI has worked in Western Province of PNG since 2002, New Ireland since 2011 and West New Britain since 2019. We work where there is an identified health need and where we can partner with local healthcare providers to reach out into their most remote communities. We take a two-prong approach towards working for a healthier PNG:
In recognition of the costs involved in volunteering, we offer the following financial support to help offset expenses:
