Program Description:
U.S. Peace Corps, Office of Global Health and HIV
Washington D.C.


The Office of Global Health and HIV (OGHH) provides technical and operational support to Peace Corps posts and headquarters offices to improve the health and well-being of individuals, families and communities where Volunteers serve. It accomplishes this by proactively securing and managing the best available human, financial and technical resources; promoting excellent programming consistent with the capabilities of Volunteers; and capitalizing on the contributions of other sectors to improve community health programming. The OGHH Programming and Training (P&T) team supports Peace Corps posts by providing quality training and resources to staff and Volunteers; technical assistance to develop and monitor evidence-based programs; and external support to conduct process and outcome evaluations. OGHH is the primary arm of Peace Corps that directs the implementation of its role in PEPFAR (the US President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief).

Possible Summer Intern Assignments include: 1) Programmatic Data Analysis related to how Peace Corps Volunteers can best implement effective OVC programming; 2) Strategic Programmatic Planning by developing a strategy on how Peace Corps Volunteers can address Non-communicable Diseases (NCDs) across the life cycle. An intern would help with researching and meeting various organizations addressing NCDs and developing a strategy on how PC can best contribute to the emerging health problems; 3) Gender Integration into existing programs – There is a growing demand to incorporate a gender lens into PC current health programs.  An intern would assist the Gender Specialist in reviewing current programs and approaches and how they would best work both in our work in HIV/AIDS and Maternal and Child Health.
This internship lasts 9 weeks, starting in early June and ending in early August.
