Fully Funded Global Internship : Check out the 2024 World Health Organization (WHO)  Internship Program

The 2024 World Health Organisation (WHO) Internship Programme is now accepting applications.

To achieve global health goals, every health system must have a capable and dynamic health workforce at its core. A pool of health professionals that have been taught, exposed to, and understand the systems and procedures in the health sector as well as the interactions between players in the international health arena is necessary for countries.

As the world authority on public health concerns, WHO is dedicated to developing a broad pipeline of future public health leaders. Through the WHO Internship Programme, students and recent graduates can enhance their knowledge and experience in a variety of fields while gaining insight into the technical and administrative initiatives of the organisation, ultimately leading to the progress of public health.

What are the objectives?

    • Provide a framework for assigning eligible students from diverse academic backgrounds to WHO programmes where their educational experience can be enhanced through capacity building opportunities.
    • Provide an opportunity for WHO programmes to benefit from engagement from students specializing in various fields related to technical and administrative programmes of WHO.
  • WHO offers internships in technical areas and administrative programmes such as communication, external relations or human resources.

The application deadline is on a rolling basis.
