Interns with Child and Family Health International (CFHI) in Uganda will complete rotations in a variety of non-profit care facilities throughout Kabale (Uganda) and the surrounding area. Please note that rotations are not clinical in nature. In Uganda, over 80% of the population lives in rural settings. The intern will join healthcare initiatives implementing education, counseling, and clinical care alongside community healthcare workers, volunteers and others mobilizing for improved health and livelihoods in the countryside of southwestern Uganda. Participants will learn about health issues facing this region through workshops, visits with local NGOs and social entrepreneurs, and participation in education and outreach efforts via two structured five week programs.

These two community-based programs in Uganda will address interactions between poverty, ill health, lack of education, and the need for empowerment in sub-Saharan Africa. Additional opportunities in public health outreach and education campaigns available. This is a chance to increase your global health experience and visit a wonderful country.
