GLOBAL HEALTH IN TANZANIA
Learn about global health in the specific context of northern Tanzania and directly from practitioners. Enjoy your orientation at the United African Alliance Community Center (UAACC) in the foothills of Mount Meru. Engage with local families and Tanzanian health care workers and students, and develop a deeper understanding of health care issues. There may be time to offer community service to a local clinic or NGO. We are also able to arrange local homestays if your program permits.
