Our Public Health Professionals’ Education and Training Working Group Is Looking for Interns
Jan 14, 2022
The World Federation of Public Health Associations (WFPHA) is currently looking for 1-2 intern(s) for its Public Health Professionals’ Education and Training Working Group.
WFPHA offers a unique environment for an internship for students in international health and development. Interns are given substantial responsibility for performing activities such as researching and writing articles, establishing contact with health and development NGOs around the world, planning international conferences, and fundraising. Each internship is structured to suit the needs and interests of the intern, such as working on an individual research assignment, as well as the requirements of WFPHA.
During the course of the internship, interns will further develop their writing and research skills and become more familiar with the key issues and actors in international health and development. They will have extensive networking opportunities as WFPHA is an international NGO in official relations with WHO, and has extensive contacts with other organizations worldwide.
The internship will be done remotely.
