5 Steps to get a job in the United Nations

FHI 360 has an exciting internship opportunity for a student interested in growing their skills within the international development sector. Under close supervision, an Intern will perform entry level professional duties which will provide the opportunity for professional training in various functional areas throughout the organization. Internship assignments serve to offer practical experience and broad exposure to a global nonprofit development organization.

The intern will work in the NTDs Department, specifically the USAIDโ€™s Act to End Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) | West Program (โ€œAct | Westโ€) โ€“ a USAID-funded program to support the elimination of NTDs in Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Cote dโ€™Ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Sierra Leone, and Togo. The project seeks to build upon the achievements of USAIDโ€™s previous NTD investments (2010โ€“2019) in West Africa in their efforts to eliminate lymphatic filariasis (LF) and trachoma as a public health problem, and the elimination of onchocerciasis (OV) in selected countries. It aims to make NTD programs capable of sustaining treatment for long-term control programs for schistosomiasis (SCH), soil transmitted helminthes (STH) and OV, and mainstream NTD programs into the national health system.

This is a paid internship with a flexible schedule based on project needs.
