OneWorld Health is changing the nature of short-term medical missions. Our weeklong experiences provide a unique, impactful cultural and educational experience for our volunteers. Volunteer teams aid us in our mission to create quality care to those in need.
 
As a volunteer, you are a representative of OneWorld Health in the regions we serve. The legacy you leave will be what we continue to build upon for years after your departure. With this responsibility, OneWorld Health holds high expectations for our representatives in the field.

Sample Itinerary:
 

  • July 5-6 - Travel to Uganda- Stay the evening at a hotel close to the airport
