Internship at WHO – Department of Reproductive Health and Research

The Department of Reproductive Health Research (RHR) includes the UNDP/UNFPA/UNICEF/WHO/World Bank Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction (HRP). HRP is the main instrument within the United Nations system for research in human reproduction. Its activities include promoting, conducting, evaluating, and coordinating interdisciplinary research on sexual and reproductive health; collaborating with countries in enhancing national capacities to conduct this research; promoting and facilitating the use of research results in policy-making and planning for sexual and reproductive health care; and the setting of standards and guidelines, including technical and ethical guidelines, in the field of sexual and reproductive health research. More information about HRP can be found here.

The Intern will support the HRP’s Maternal and Perinatal Health team collaboration with experts in maternal immunization and maternal and perinatal epidemiology contributing to the development of an integrated active safety surveillance system for novel interventions in pregnancy in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).

The applicants should have completed three years of full-time studies (bachelor’s level or equivalent) at a university or equivalent institution prior to commencing the assignment, AND be enrolled in a course of study at a university or equivalent institution leading to a formal qualification (applicants who have already graduated may also qualify for consideration provided that they apply for the internship within six months after completion of their formal qualification).

The exact amount of the stipend will be calculated for each intern, after selection, based on a financial disclosure form that they will complete.
