International Care Ministries
Community-Based Health Impact Assessment
Location: Manila, Philippines
Duration: 8-12 weeks
Number of Positions: 2
About: International Care Ministries (ICM) is a non-governmental organization that 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. ICM is a Christian faith-based non-governmental organization; however, interns may be from any background, and the analytical work is secular.
Intern Responsibilities: 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. Interns may also have the opportunity to participate in health program design efforts, and may travel to project sites on islands in central Philippines to interview stakeholders and collect data.
This internship will give the student an opportunity to work with a real dataset collected through an intervention that is currently running in the Philippines. The households receiving the interventions live in extreme poverty, therefore the student will also get an understanding of the challenges associated with working in these contexts. As the interventions will continue to run, the outcomes of analyses could be utilized to benefit future protocols and delivery strategies. Past projects also include preparing frameworks for the revision of ICM’s primary health education curriculum (including qualitative assessment of feasibility and effectiveness in the field); regional epidemic mapping of health needs; assisting in development and revision of current health intervention protocols; and analysis and evaluation of ICM’s overall data collection systems.
Qualifications: Strong quantitative and qualitative analytical skills. Familiarity with and/or coursework in public health issues. Language skills not required.
