Peace Corps health Volunteers serve in a broad range of areas, including HIV/AIDS education and prevention. HIV/AIDS Volunteers assist communities that are currently being ravaged socially and economically by the AIDS pandemic. Volunteering in the area of HIV/AIDS offers an opportunity to make a significant difference in the lives of others.
Activities include working in an orphanage with HIV-positive children; implementing programs for at-risk youth; collaborating with faith-based organizations on prevention messages; working at a community HIV center; creating a support group for HIV-positive people; teaching—formally and informally—about HIV/AIDS prevention and care; counseling and aiding local residents; and providing nutrition and hygiene education classes in communities.
For qualifications, please see "Education" and "Experience" under the primary description of Health.
