Intern Responsibilities:

IIP interns will contribute to one or more of the following projects:
  • Improving access to sexual and reproductive health for youth and adolescents 
    This is a three-part project:
    • Part 1: Convening of a national coalition of stakeholders working to address sexual and reproductive health of youth and adolescents. Some of the activities for this part include sending coalition updates, sharing new research and hosting a national meeting.
      IIP interns will support the coordination of coalition events and take part in networking efforts. For every event, the IIP intern would compile a comprehensive report and take part in project team debriefing meetings.
    • Part 2: Mmoho – national campaign on adolescent reproductive health
      Ibis is currently rolling out a national campaign that seeks to address the occurrence of teenage pregnancy and other adolescent reproductive health issues.
      IIP intern’s responsibilities will include drafting mmoho website content and monthly features and participating in mmoho events.
    • Part 3: Research - Mmoho campaign is informed by ongoing research. Anticipated activities of the IIP intern  include but are not limited to: coding, data collection, literature review and drafting manuscripts and research briefs.
  • Improving sexuality education in public schools
