International Care Ministries (ICM) Philippines
International Care Ministries (ICM) has been serving the ultrapoor in the Philippines since 1992. In partnership with community leaders from thousands of slum communities, ICM delivers programs that transform the lives of more than 100,000 destitute people each year. These multidisciplinary interventions address values, health and livelihood. Interns will partner with the ICM Health Services and Research Teams to analyze survey and operational data in assessing the impact of community-based health interventions. They will use statistical and epidemiological methods to understand the outcomes of these interventions, and the potential underlying variables that are associated. Strong quantitative and qualitative analytical skills are required. Past projects include: preparing frameworks for the revision of ICM's primary health education curriculum (includes qualitative assessment of feasibility and effectiveness in the field); regional epidemic mapping of health needs to assess the applicability of ICM's health training; assisting in development and revision of current health intervention protocols; and analysis and evaluation of ICM's overall data collection systems. Additional responsibilities may include writing or assistance with other program activities. ICM is a faith-based non-governmental organization; however, interns may be from any background, and the analytical work is secular. Interns are not expected to participate in any religious activities. This internship lasts 8-10 weeks, with start and end dates to be set in consultation with the intern.
