International Public Health Internship Program

The International Public Health Internship Program is a nine-month global health program that targets vulnerable populations living in sub-Sarahan Africa. Interns will work with project managers and health care professionals in Bauchi, Nigeria. Working together, interns will develop and implement public health campaigns that target major health concerns such as immunization, reproductive health, adolescent health, food and nutrition, child health, drugs, food hygiene and safety, control of Malaria, and HIV/ AIDS.

Educating the local community about key healthcare issues is an important part of this internship. Promoting awareness is the best way to ensure the prevention of avoidable diseases. Interns will create public health campaigns that will be presented in these communities.
