IVI have developed a wide range of nutrition programs and various placements for qualified practitioners specialising in nutrition including other areas such as natural health, malnutrition, dietetics, diabetes care, naturopathy, and alternative health disciplines.
Ideally, Qualified practitioners and/or any student studying in the discipline of health science or related fields. In most cases public health volunteers overseas will be working alongside qualified health practitioners and representing government affiliated networks. Volunteers without qualifications in this field are still encouraged to apply and depending on your desire and experience, you may be accepted into the program
IVI’s public health volunteering programs cater to recent graduates with nutrition and dietetics backgrounds seeking to make a positive impact in typically nutritionly deficient communities in developing countries. We have nutrition programs available in Fiji, Philippines, India, Vietnam and Greece with the refugee crisis.
In addition to airport transfers, accommodation and meals, the costs involved may include training and supervision in comprehensive blood/health screenings including anemia/iron strip and cholesterol testing, communication costs (eg. phone calls) and administration for travel to rural parts of the country. Each program is unique so please review the options and speak to us with any questions.
