WFPHA offers a unique environment for an internship for students in international health and development. Interns are given substantial responsibility for performing activities such as researching and writing articles for the newsletter, establishing contact with health and development NGOs around the world, planning international conferences, and fundraising. Each internship is structured to suit the needs and interests of the intern, such as working on an individual research assignment, as well as the requirements of WFPHA.
During the course of the internship, interns will further develop their writing and research skills and become more familiar with the key issues and actors in international health and development in relation to the Oral Health Working Group (OHWG) activities.
In the last year, the OHWG has focused its activities on three main pillars: Oral and public health integration, advocacy and professional’s capacity building through webinars and publications, and has started a new project on formula milk.
