Organization Overview
The Jabulani Rural Health Foundation was founded to support Zithulele Hospital and the community it serves. It is responsible for a broad range of services to the community and hospital, including early childhood development, HIV and TB treatment support and the Healthy Village initiative. The Zithulele Research Unit is embedded at the hospital and is closely linked to Jabulani, and tries to do research that is relevant and helpful to our community and to inform policy questions linked to maternal and child health, primary health care, HIV and TB.

Intern Responsibilities:

The IIP intern will assist Jabulani and the hospital with a variety of practical projects ranging from assistance with data capture and data analysis, to conducting basic, practical, clinically-oriented research that will help them better understand the community and its health needs. Interns will also be able to embark on independent research projects. Past projects include: conducting community surveys to assess access to water and sanitation, researching early childhood development and health as related in the community, creating health awareness in high school students, and following up on twins born at Zithuele Hospital. This internship is based in a remote, low-resource area of South Africa.
