Global health is an indispensable field of study for advancing the health of populations all over the world. Today, there is an array of international health organizations that provide global health aid and care. International organizations are usually divided into three subcategories, including multilateral, bilateral and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). Here is a look at three agencies aimed at improving healthcare in developing countries:

1) World Health Organization (WHO)

As the premier international health organization, WHO works with the United Nations to provide guidance in global health matters, shape the health research agenda, set healthcare standards and issue technical support to developing countries. Their database illustrates a number of projects and programs in over 100 health topics. The index includes diseases ranging from avian influenza to taeniasis.

Although landing a job with WHO is competitive, the organization offers two different internship programs for high school students and undergraduates that can potentially turn into permanent positions. These internships can last anywhere from six to 12 weeks and will give interested students insight into the inner workings of the intergovernmental agency.

2) The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

Located in Washington D.C., USAID’s Bureau for Global Health is committed to prevent suffering and create a better future for families in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Caribbean and the Middle East. The bilateral agency’s development projects aim to confront global health challenges through the improvement of healthcare quality and use of essential services. USAID is comprised of eight offices that largely focus on child, maternal and reproductive health, malaria, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and infectious diseases.

Currently, USAID is in urgent need of contracting officers. Visit their website for more information on positions within the Bureau of Global Health and internships for undergraduate and graduate students.

3) Project HOPE

As the largest NGO devoted to international health in the United States, Project HOPE has delivered essential medical equipment and services to “prevent disease, promote wellness and save lives” all around the globe. By providing health expertise and training, the organization hopes to build capacity and skills at all levels of the healthcare system, starting from volunteers to doctors.

borgen project reviews
Thousands of people have volunteered or interned at The Borgen Project. Below are Borgen Project reviews and quotes from those who’ve volunteered or interned at the organization. If you’d like to get better insight into what it’s like volunteering or interning and would like to talk with someone in your area who volunteers at The Borgen Project, please contact [email protected].

 

“Cutting edge, hip, non-partisan and a cause that is noble.”- Bill Childers, Charleston, SC

“The Borgen Project has the power to help the most people.” – A. L. Loy Fort Collins, CO

“The Borgen Project has a very clear mission and has a very realistic, solid plan for achieving its goals. It is well organized, well respected.” – Jessica Muller-Pearson, New Orleans, LA

“I have volunteered for organizations and food kitchens that help a handful of people or a specific family. This is great, however, I wanted to have a bigger impact and affect more people. That is what drew me to The Borgen Project: by influencing political leaders, we can help millions more people than would of been possible at the organizations I have previously worked with.” – Amelia Merritt, Mercer Island, WA

“The Borgen Project is the voice for the world’s voiceless.” Adrienne Ostrove, Albany, NY

“Most organizations focus on raising money to bring clean water and improve sanitation/living conditions, which is amazing, but The Borgen Project focuses on policy – which is where real changes can be made.” – Kayla Ring, Poway, CA

“I was interested in the advocacy aspect of The Borgen Project. Many non-profits seem to circumvent the political process when dealing with international aid and development, and I was impressed and intrigued with how The Borgen Project works through the political channels by lobbying Congressional leaders and staff, as well as engaging and mobilizing the greater population to do more to end global poverty.” – Cailyn Torpie, Seattle, WA

“For me, The Borgen Project is the gateway to the end of global poverty.” – Patricia Ashe, Birmingham, AL

Global_Leaders
For individuals who are passionate about improving worldwide living conditions and gaining the skills necessary to further oneself in the field of global health, internships are fraught with worthwhile and unique opportunities to gain knowledge and hands-on experience. With the plethora of diverse internships, the Global Health Corps (GHC) initiative, established in 2009, has stood out as an enriching opportunity for passionate young individuals. The Global Health Corp was engendered by the belief that adequate health is not only a privilege, but also a right for every human across the globe.

GHC aligns interns with top-notch organizations so both parties are able to collaborate-mutually benefiting each other in order to improve global health. According to the GHC, many opportunities to improve global health are not available for individuals who have not already established themselves in the medical field. Thus, another goal of the Corp is to provide opportunities for young people, especially individuals from diverse roots, to achieve their potential and make an impact on worldwide healthcare.

The program offers summer internships at the GHC headquarters in New York City. Furthermore, fellows can also be placed in locales such as Burundi, Rwanda, Uganda and Zambia. The internship provides unique opportunities such as aiding the enhancement of the GHC program, raising money through fundraising, and improving communications support.

According to the Corp, there are a series of six steps taken throughout the internship project. First, fellows are chosen, then they are paired with a host organization and partnered with a participating organization. Additionally, fellows are able to develop their unique skill-sets, establish an educated community and continue to promote global health initiatives long after the internship expires.

The Corp also provides opportunities for interns to work for global change through three key goals. Interns will be able to help increase the impact of prominent organizations by working with such organizations. Additionally, the GHC provides excellent training for aspiring future leaders by engaging interns in a wide-range of developmental activities. Furthermore, interns are able to engage in constructing an international community for change that will continue to flourish even after the yearly internships have been brought to a successful end.
