We can’t really wrap up the lifestyle in a “one-paragraph-fits-all-scenarios” promise, because it all depends on where you are going, really – from an HIV/Aids clinic in downtown Johannesburg to a district hospital in deep rural KwaZulu-Natal. There are facilities where you will have access to beautiful, contemporary housing, free of charge, and others where you will simply be expected to make your own way. However, we can assure you that we will help get you adequately prepared for where you will be going.
As a point of departure, you might find it useful to take a look at our orientation guide. You may also find it quite reassuring to know that many of the people we have placed, in the remotest of settings, report that they are enjoying a very active social life, and that communities form around the hospital life. There are also ample opportunities to enjoy sport, outdoor living, and game viewing – not to mention touring the beautiful sites of southern Africa.
