Call for 2 IHP internships (2018)

By The editorial team
on January 2, 2018

The weekly International Health Policies (IHP) newsletter  is a flagship (knowledge management) activity of the IHP network, funded by DGD. The network aims to “empower committed groups of global health experts based in the South through innovative collaborative models allowing them to have greater control on policy and implementation knowledge and its management”, in line with ITM’s ‘Switching the Poles’ logic.

As was the case in the past few years, we would like to draw upon 2 interns from the Global South to help us in this respect. The interns will be expected to join the IHP team for a 3-month period, most probably one in the first half of 2018, the other one in the second half. Interns will be based in Antwerp, Belgium, for three months. Besides IHP related work, they can also take part in other health policy unit meetings, classes & activities.


For more info on IHP (network, newsletter & blogs), see the website:
