Volunteer opportunity – Haematology

In 2020, MAP conducted a comprehensive assessment of haematology care within Gaza, identifying a critical need for intervention. The lack of specialised doctors and nurses, coupled with a shortage of medical staff ad the absence of ongoing haematology training and residency programmes, has resulted in overwhelmed health workers handling an excessive patient load. This, combined with scarcity of essential medical supplies, laboratory reagents, and specialised equipment, further hampers service provision. MAP is taking a comprehensive approach to strengthening haematology care in Gaza by providing crucial supplies and equipment and enhancing the skills of the multidisciplinary team through specialised training initiatives to elevate the quality of care for haematology patients and transform healthcare outcomes.

MAP is now looking to recruit the following specialist volunteers to join our haematology multidisciplinary team:
