The opportunity for international training does not meet the need.
Global health internships develop public health and policy skills in the next generation of professionals. But countries with the health systems in most need are those most highly underrepresented amongst interns.
Enter the Equitable Access to Global Health Internships Project. This initiative seeks to change current thinking and policy on international global health training opportunities. It will:
- Compile and publish statistics and information on global health internship access
- Create a short video documentary and written report of the issues surrounding global health internship access, narrated through the stories of two LMIC interns accepted at WHO-HQ
- Generate a compelling advocacy package for policy makers
- Engage with diverse national and NGO stakeholders to facilitate policy change
HOW FELLOWS CAN HELP
Engage with the project directly to foster debate on global health training issues with relevant stakeholders.
