Volunteer roles for DRC project

King’s Global Health Partnerships (KGHP) is looking for three volunteers to support a new project in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

The partnership has recently secured funding to implement a trauma registry in the Kongo Central Province, in the south west of the county, over a two-year period.

KGHP says that the first phase of the project is to understand the current context, both in the DRC and in lower and middle-income countries (LMICs) more widely.

It is looking for three clinicians with experience in emergency medicine and global health to remotely support the team with this phase. The roles will focus on the development of:

  • a feasibility assessment of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) Clinical Registry in LMICs; and
  • a situational analysis of trauma care data in the Kongo Central Province.

The deadline for applications is Friday 10 November, however KGHP will review applications on a rolling basis due to the timeline and needs of the project, so people are encouraged to apply earlier.

For more details and to apply, please complete the online application form here and submit a CV under the ‘Apply’ tab.
