Internship opportunities in reproductive health and HIV/AIDS

The YOUTHNET Programme of Family Health International (FHI) announces
an 11-week internship programme designed to give current or recent
undergraduate university students from developing countries experi-
ence in designing, implementing and evaluating youth reproductive
health (YRH) and HIV/AIDS programmes. Six positions, based in the
Washington, DC area are available. The internship programme will run
from 27 May to 9 August, 2002.

Each intern will develop a collaborative relationship with YOUTHNET
staff working in one of six technical areas related to YRH and
HIV/AIDS. These are:

- Health Communications and Youth Leadership
- Research and Evaluation
- Private Sector and Corporate Social Responsibility
- Policy and Gender
- Country Programme Management
- Journalism and Electronic Media

Interns will receive free housing (if needed) and an expense allow-
ance of US$ 300 per week. Travel to/from the Washington, DC area to
participate in the internship will be paid up to US$ 400 per individ-

Preference will be given to dynamic individuals from developing coun-
tries currently enrolled in or recently graduated from US-based un-
dergraduate universities who expect to return to their country of
origin after their studies are complete. Individuals must have par-
ticular interests or skills in YRH and HIV/AIDS in developing country
contexts and one or more of the technical areas listed above. Foreign
language and computer skills are desirable.
