Volunteer Society Nepal has an exciting Public Health internship and volunteer opportunities available for undergraduate and graduate students. This position will complement education with experience to best prepare candidates for the professional public health world awaiting them upon graduation.
As a volunteer or intern, you’ll gain real-life experience and also contribute to the health and well-being of the community in which you serve. Above all participating in public health internships or volunteer positions helps give you a well-rounded, solid education, and your experience will be invaluable
Public Health volunteer/ intern opportunities range from HIV epidemiology or prevention, emergency preparedness, tobacco control, women’s health, environmental health, health policy, health communications, STI’s, nutrition, prenatal and postnatal care, human waste management, water quality and other public health issues or community health in the field and basic first aid training. It is the novelty of foreign volunteers/ interns helping to deliver the knowledge that really helps to draw people in the community to these educational events.
Public Health volunteers/ Interns may organize First Aid Training and basic hygiene Training. For doing this, Interns/volunteers do not have advanced training. While placements can certainly make excellent use of highly trained first aid instructors, even a beginner can help to deliver basic first aid training overseas. A volunteer with a basic first aid course and a manual on basic first aid can deliver important training for children in orphanages and daycares, as well as for those living in rural areas with little access to formal education.
