Description

This 75-bed hospital serves the tribal people of the region. It has good operating rooms and is supported by laboratory, pharmacy, X-ray and ultrasound facilities and has physiotherapy and mother/child healthcare departments. Doctors here often see illnesses now rare in the West, such as malaria, acute gastroenteritis, TB, tetanus and similar illnesses. Surgeons and obstetricians are especially needed. A doctor is urgently needed to cover home-assignment leave for the only doctor currently working at the hospital. He/she must be willing to work in less than ideal conditions. Commitment to the task and to the people of this region are the main qualifications. Translators will be provided.
