DescriptionGlobal Medicare Foundation is currently seeking interns to join their public health project in Cameroon.
GMF is looking for interns who wish to specialize in the community outreach aspect of our Medicine & Healthcare programs in Cameroon to join a fulltime Public Health project. This opportunity is open to student looking to gain experience in public health or those already working in the field. You can contribute by helping local children and adults who would struggle to access healthcare or afford treatment without our outreach programs.
The Public Health project is based in and around many small villages in the South West Region.
Public health interns participate in community outreach activities every day. Interns work alongside a local healthcare professional who will train you wherever possible in the various screening and testing procedures.
Interns are involved in the following types of work:
Research on tropical diseases affecting local populations
Organise educational talks, debates, and plays on teens hygiene and sexuality (a taboo in most housewholes)
General health testing (e.g. blood sugar levels, body mass index, blood pressure)
Eye screening Screening for worms Minor wound and skin treatments Malaria testing and treatment
Educational talks on general health issues (e.g. hygiene and first aid)
The public health outreach programs take place in orphanages, schools, churches, villages, and community centers. Interns usually work from Monday to Friday and have the weekends free to experience living in Cameroon.
Our internships/volunteers intakes are at the start of each month. Applicants are encouraged to join us at the start of each month.
