2015 Global Health Fellows Brochure

We are now accepting applications for the summer 2015 Global Health Fellows Program in Geneva, Switzerland.

Overview:
The Global Health Fellows program is designed to equip students to join in the fight against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and other pressing health challenges. The Program will provide students with both an academic and experiential perspective on how intergovernmental institutions, public-private partnerships, and non-governmental organizations shape global health policy. By combining internships and an intensive course on global health issues, the program is an unique opportunity to learn first-hand how global health policy is formulated and implemented. In the past, students have interned at a wide range of NGOs and intergovernmental organizations, including UNAIDS, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, UNHCR, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations, and various offices of the World Health Organization, from the Department for Prevention of Noncommunicable Diseases to the Department of Public Health, Innovation and Intellectual Property.

What:
The summer program includes:
· An Internship in Global Health Policy of 8-12 weeks in Geneva, including an intensive, one-week course, titled “Health Policy in a Globalizing World” and
· Opportunities throughout the summer to network and socialize with other policy interns and experts in global health

The Global Health Fellows Program offers students assistance in matching to internships in Geneva-based institutions, the opportunity to learn directly from experts working to resolve some of the world’s most significant challenges in global health, and a community of fellow students from around the world.
